According to the arrest warrant, the specialist is said to have sexually abused a victim between March 2001 and November 2007. The Quebec City Police Department states that these actions took place in connection with his medical practice.

“The CHU de Québec-Université Laval (CHU) will offer its full and full cooperation to the competent authorities in this file. Due to the ongoing court case, CHU will not be making any further comment,” said Bryan Gélinas, public affairs adviser for the hospital group, on Monday.
