A man who was convicted of a sexual assault in the late 1980s has had two new charges filed against him.

The two sex-related charges against Gary Gerard Hoskins date back almost 20 years.

Police said they believe the assaults took place between 1984 and 1986 in or near Stephenville.

Hoskins was a Roman Catholic priest in that area at the time.

His case was set over and will be back in court on March 25.
