Former Nova Scotia bishop in custody

Raymond Lahey turns himself in to Ottawa police

Recently resigned Antigonish Bishop Raymond Lahey is in police custody in Ottawa. Lahey is facing charges of possession and importation of child pornography after “images of concern” were found on his laptop during a random search at the Ottawa International Airport last month. Lahey resigned as Bishop on the weekend, citing personal reasons, after charges were laid Friday. His arrest comes only weeks after Lahey finished overseeing the $15 million settlement of a sexual abuse lawsuit against priests in his diocese.
