Fake Catholic clergyman rearrested after more sex crime complaints

An Edmonton man who poses as a Catholic clergyman was rearrested Thursday after two more people accused him of sex crimes. Justin Georges Stephen Coulombe, 33, faces five new charges, including four counts of sexual interference and one count of invitation to sexual touching. Both cases are historical and involve underage boys from the Edmonton area.

Coulombe was originally arrested last Thursday and charged with several child exploitation offences involving two boys, also from the Edmonton area, under the age of 16. Those charges are based on incidents that took place in 2017, after Coulombe moved to Edmonton from Langley, B.C., in January. Coulombe will remain in custody until a new bail hearing, which is scheduled for next week.
