Appeal of Acquittal of Father Charles J. Picot Scheduled

Father Charles J. Picot is a former priest from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bathurst, New Brunswick. Picot was ordained in 1974 and served in the Bathurst Diocese until 1993.

In 1993 Picot was found guilty of two counts of sexual assault and one count of indecent assault.

In March of this year he was found not guilty of the indecent assault against a boy who was a member of his parish in Dalhousie, New Brunswick in the 1970s.

The not guilty verdict is currently under appeal. The appeal is scheduled to be heard by the New Brunswick Court of Appeal on October 25, 2010.

I currently represent a number of persons who allege they were sexually abused by Father Charles Picot. We have been retained to file a claim against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bathurst for compensation for Picot’s sexual abuse.
