LCSO: Suspect Accused Of Sexual Assaults Over 11-Year Period

KINSTON, N.C. (AP) — Authorities have jailed a man who they say committed multiple sex offenses over an 11-year period. The Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that the victims of years of sexual assault reported crimes against them on May 1. Detectives conducted interviews which showed the alleged offenses took place between 2001 and 2012 on numerous occasions. Authorities arrested Christopher Canuette on Tuesday and charged him with seven counts of first- degree statutory sex offense. Canuette is jailed on a $500,000 secured bond. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
