Kedgwick man facing sexual assault-related charges changes plea

A Kedgwick man facing sexual assault-related charges has changed his plea.

49-year-old Stephane Bujold pleaded guilty Wednesday to touching a person younger than 16, sexual assault, and sexual assault with a weapon causing bodily harm in exchange for the withdrawal of three other charges.

The charges are related to incidents in 1998 and 2006 and involve two separate women.

There's a court-ordered publication ban in place.

Bujold will be sentenced on February 19th.
