Placentia-area man facing sexual interference charges
A man from the Placentia area is facing multiple charges for allegedly inappropriately touching an underage girl.
A publication ban is in place to protect the identity of the victim. The three counts of sexual interference stem from events in the summer of 2014 that took place in multiple communities.
In each case, it’s alleged the 44-year-old suspect touched the girl with his penis. The accused made his first appearance in Harbour Grace provincial court Wednesday, March 16. His case is due to return to court April 27.
