Miramichi man admits to breaching conditions not to communicate with youth

A 26-year-old Miramichi man has changed his plea to guilty after breaching conditions that he not communicate with anyone under 16.

Timothy Robichaud pleaded guilty to failure to comply with a prohibition order and failure to comply with a probation order.

The charges stem from an RCMP investigation after a complaint from American authorities in February that the man was communicating with a youth from the United States.

Robichaud is now in custody and will appear Miramichi court for sentencing on May 24.
