Hall Beach man accused of multiple molestations


An accused child molester from Hall Beach appeared in court this week protected by a publication ban on his name.

The 51-year-old man accused of molesting six girls, between eight and 12 years old, sat quietly in the Iqaluit courtroom on Wednesday morning as his lawyer requested an adjournment until later this month.

He faces 13 charges of sexual assault and sexual interference stemming from incidents between August, 2003 and March, 2004.

In a previous court appearance in May, Justice Beverley Browne included the man’s identity in a publication ban, which usually only covers the names of the victims.
