Arthur McGuigan plea now expected in March

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

A former Bluefield High School youth worker charged with trafficking is set to enter a plea next month.

The plea for Arthur Francis McGuigan was adjourned in Charlottetown Provincial Court Tuesday. The plea is now scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 6.

McGuigan is facing a charge related to a drug offence.

Last month, the Crown amended the drug charge from possession to trafficking.

McGuigan is also scheduled to appear in P.E.I.’s Supreme Court in May to enter a plea on charges of sexual assault and sexual exploitation.

This is the second time McGuigan has faced sex-related charges.

In 2014 McGuigan pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation and drug trafficking involving a female student stemming from incidents in August 2013. He was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison.
