A man from the Caraquet area will be sentenced next month on charges of sexual assault with a weapon.

His name can't be released due to a court-ordered publication ban aimed at protecting the identity of the victim.

He originally pleaded not guilty but changed his plea on Wednesday.

The man remains in custody and will be sentenced on August 29th.
