Sex crimes trial of former priest in Nunavut extended

APTN National News
The trial of former priest Eric Dejaeger was supposed to wrap up this week.

The now defrocked priest is accused of more than 70 sex crimes against children dating back to the 1970s.

But the Crown is asking for an extension on the closing arguments.

As APTN’s Kent Driscoll reports, that may have an effect on how much time Dejaeger will spend behind bars.
