Blockhouse man faces sex charges. A Lunenburg County man is accused of sex charges against a young person in incidents that police allege took place over several months. Brian Gregory Langille, 71, of Blockhouse is charged with three counts each of sexual assault and sexual interference. His next court appearance is slated for October as his case proceeds through the legal system. Langille was arrested on August 14. "Investigators have reason to believe there may be other victims in the community who have not yet come forward," RCMP said in a statement. "Those with information are asked to come forward in order to help officers further the investigation." Authorities urge those with information to contact Lunenburg District RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

Impaired driving charges lead to conditional sentence. A Mill Village man was sentenced to serve four months of house arrest plus two months of a nightly curfew after he admitted to a pair of impaired driving charges. Nicholas Carmen Conrad, 29, was behind the wheel of a vehicle on two occasions in June when police conducted traffic stops and noticed Conrad exhibiting signs of alcohol impairment. The Bridgewater Police Service pulled over Conrad's vehicle near Wileville and noticed he had bloodshot eyes and an odour of alcohol on his breath. The vehicle was seen swerving in the road, court heard. In the second instance, Conrad registered breathalyser readings of 150 and 140 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood after his vehicle was pulled over in the Middlewood area. The legal limit for a fully licenced driver is 80. Conrad will also be on probation for a year and won't be able to drive in Canada for a two year period. Conrad was handed the six month conditional sentence on August 16.

Jail, probation on threats, failure to appear. A 33 year old man was ordered to serve 36 days in jail on an intermittent basis and placed on 18 month probation after he accepted responsibility to charges of uttering threats and breaching a court order. During a phone conversation with his spouse, Michael Patrick Beaumier threatened to slit her throat from ear to ear. The couple were separated at the time, court heard. The verbal exchange occurred in April 2014. Beaumier also failed to appear in court for a scheduled appearance. Judge Paul Scovil also ordered Beaumier, who was sentenced August 23, to pay $1,727 in restitution to the woman. Beaumier was given credit for his time spend remanded in custody.

Conditional discharge on threats offences. A 23 year old man will avoid a criminal record when he completes a year of probation in relation to threats offences. Dale Oickle made comments suggesting "killing and burying someone" during an August 2016 incident in Liverpool, Crown prosecutor Michael MacKenzie told court. Oickle also uttered a death threat in October 2014 during another dispute. Oickle was sentenced August 15.
