Charges were back in court on Tuesday for a Roman Catholic priest accused of sexually abusing a seven-year-old boy in North Bay dating back to 1958.
John Edward Sullivan, 87, now living in Montreal, is out on bail. His next court date is Aug. 14.
Sullivan was an ordained priest at the Pro-Cathedral of the Assumption when the sexual offences are alleged at various times from 1958 to 1979.
Sullivan was arrested last month 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.
