MIRAMICHI, N.B. - Police in eastern New Brunswick have charged a 56-year-old man with several sexual offences related to alleged incidents that occurred between 1977 and 1996.

The RCMP say Wilbert Dedam of the Esgenoopetitj First Nation faces a number of charges including one count of rape, one count of having sexual intercourse with a female under 14 years old, one count of having sexual intercourse with a female between the age of 14 and 16 years old, and two counts of sexual assault.

Dedam is being held in custody until a bail hearing in Miramichi provincial court on May 12.

The RCMP don't say how many alleged victims there are.

But in a news release the Mounties say they have not ruled out that there may be other potential victims.

An RCMP spokeswoman could not immediately be reached for comment.
