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.

    Isn’t this convenient?? The day he is to appear in court is the day the defence lawyer announces he’s in the hospital. Wonder how long he knew of this? Typical crap to prolong the complainant’s suffering. Why should that collar’s hospital stay affect the hearing??…He probably wasn’t going to be there anyway. Sucks.
