Nunavut RCMP have charged a former Mountie with sex offences involving a child that stem back to the 1960s.
The charges follow a complaint filed by one person about alleged sexual assaults in Cape Dorset, a hamlet near the southern tip of Baffin Island.
Police say Lauren McKiel, who is 78, is charged with rape, indecent assault and having sex with someone under 14.
He is to appear in Iqaluit court on the charges on Sept. 14.
RCMP say McKiel held the rank of superintendent when he retired.
