Ex-bishop in N.S. facing child porn charges

E-mail Print PDF

A recently retired Roman Catholic bishop from Nova Scotia has been charged with possessing and importing child pornography.

Raymond Lahey, 69, who stunned his diocese by resigning suddenly as the bishop of Antigonish on Saturday, was charged Sept. 25 by the Ottawa police after images "of concern" were found on his laptop computer.

Lahey is well-known in Nova Scotia for overseeing the historic, $15-million settlement of a class-action lawsuit brought by survivors of child sexual abuse in the Diocese of Antigonish.

The settlement Lahey negotiated earlier this year was prompted by a class-action lawsuit brought against the diocese by Ronald Martin, a Cape Breton hair stylist, who claims he was abused as a child by a Catholic priest.

Martin's brother made similar allegations in a note he left behind before killing himself in 2002.
