Ottawa Valley priest charged over sexual assault allegations
PEMBROKE - A well-known Roman Catholic priest from Pembroke is facing several charges after three men alleged they were sexually assaulted decades ago.
Monsignor Robert Borne, 60, is accused of two counts each of gross indecency, indecent assault and breach of trust in relation to the alleged victims.
Borne, a Pembroke native, was charged in late April but only turned himself in to Ontario Provincial Police on Friday.
The incidents are alleged to have occurred between 1977 and 1995.
Police say their investigation began with a single complaint in January 2008 that a boy visiting Borne had allegedly been sexually assaulted. Others have since come forward.
Borne will appear in Pembroke court July 7.
