Nova Scotia bishop's child-porn trial set for May 2011
December 03, 2010
Bishop Raymond Lahey, who resigned last year after he was detained in a child-pornography investigation, will face a criminal trial in May 2011.
At a December 3 hearing—which the bishop himself did not attend—an Ottawa court set a May 4 opening date for Lahey’s trial, which had already been postponed. The former head of the Antigonish, Nova Scotia diocese, was stopped at an airport in September 2009. Police reported that they discovered hundreds of pornographic files on his laptop computer.
