Pointe-Verte man sentenced to six months behind bars for trying to buy sexual services from minor

A Pointe-Verte man has been sentenced to six months behind bars for buying sexual services from a person younger than the age of 18.

The offence happened in Petit-Rocher back in 2015.

The BNPP says 57-year-old Jean-Louis Arseneau will serve twelve months probation upon his release, has been ordered to register with the National Sex offender Registry and provide a sample of DNA to the National DNA Data Bank.

A court-ordered publication ban is in place to protect the identity of the victim.
