A suspect charged following an investigation into historical sexual assault in Richmond Co. is scheduled to return to court in the new year.
RCMP say it happened in different areas of Isle Madame in the 1970s.
Adolphe Patrick Kehoe, 84, of River Bourgeois has been charged with sexual assault; he was released from custody.
Kehoe, whose case opened in court in August, was expected for election-and-plea in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court Monday; instead, his lawyer said there was a medical issue, and the hearing was adjourned until Jan. 28.
His lawyer said his client was in hospital when the hearing was also adjourned in September.
