The former leader of the Parti Quebecois has been accused of sexual assault with a weapon in allegations that date back to 2014, according to CBC.

A warrant has already been issued by a judge and the former leader must now go to a police station in order to set a court date.

The leader, whose name is André Boisclair, 54, was first elected to the Quebec legislature in 1989, becoming the youngest elected official in the provinces history and the age of 23.

Boisclair is facing three separate charges: two charges of alleged assault and one charge of sexual assault while carrying, using or threatening to use a weapon.

If found guilty, Boisclair could face some significant time in jail as each charge is punishable by up to 14 years in prison.  

Boisclair had a high-flying career, both inside and outside of politics. He served in the provincial government's cabinet and became leader of the party in 2005. Boisclair is openly gay.

In 2018, Boisclair was charged with impaired driving, receiving a $1,000 fine.
