Disgraced former priest sentenced again for sex crimes against children

APTN National News
Former priest Eric Dejaeger was back in Nunavut court Thursday where he was sentenced to four counts of sex crimes against Edmonton youth between 1974 and 1978.

They’ll be served concurrently with the 11 years he was already serving for attacking Nunavut children while in the position of a priest.

APTN’s Kent Driscoll reports it won’t be the last time he’s in Nunavut court.
