Gilbert Rozon has been charged with rape and indecent assault.
The charges were laid on the Just for Laughs founder after a lengthy investigation into multiple allegations made by more than a dozen women, and relates to a single victim in 1979.
Quebec’s director of criminal and penal prosecutions (DPCP) announced the two charges today.
Rozon faces one count of indecent assault and one count of rape, charges that were part of the Criminal Code when the alleged events took place. The prosecution service says they will not pursue the 13 other charges against Rozon.
