NORTH BAY – An 87-year-old Roman Catholic priest accused of sexual abuse dating back to 1958 is in hospital, a North Bay court heard Tuesday.
Charges against John Edward Sullivan were adjourned to Oct. 9 for his lawyer to receive medication information.
Sullivan, who resides in Montreal, was an ordained priest at the Pro-Cathedral of the Assumption when the sexual offences are alleged to have taken place at various times from 1958 to 1979.
Sullivan was arrested in June in Montreal on a North Bay warrant for gross indecency following a North Bay Police Service investigation into a complaint of historical child sexual abuse.
