Former Kangirsuk official charged with sexual assault
Marc Carrier, the one-time secretary treasurer for Kangirsuk, stands accused of sexually assaulting a minor.
Suzanne Ricard, the Crown prosecutor for Ungava Bay, said the charge stems from an incident alleged to have occurred on Nov. 8, 2002.
To protect the identity of the underage victim, she said she could release few other details in the case.
Carrier, 34, has no convictions for similar offences, but in October, 1998, he went on a one-night vandalism spree at Kangirsuk’s municipal office. He destroyed the building’s equipment and broke several windows.
He also damaged the council’s truck and the town’s only police truck in the incident.
He was later convicted of breaking and entering and assault.
If found guilty of sexual assault, Carrier would face a maximum sentence of 10 years.
A preliminary hearing has been set for June 4.
