Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh, 67, is charged with gross indecency and indecent assault.

MacIntosh was convicted in July of 13 counts of indecent assault and gross indecency involving another two complainants.

He was sentenced to four years in prison but was given credit for his two years in remand, leaving him only two years less a day to serve.

MacIntosh was granted bail in October and placed under house arrest at his Halifax apartment while he awaits an appeal in May of the conviction.

More than 15 years have passed since RCMP received complaints from men that they were sexually abused by MacIntosh as boys in Cape Breton.

By the time the men came forward with their allegations, MacIntosh had left Canada to set up a business and residence in India. He was extradited in 2007.

Three complainants testified in July that MacIntosh fondled and performed oral sex on them when they were between 11 and 14 years old.

The judge rejected the testimony of one of the now middle-aged men and found MacIntosh not guilty of 13 charges involving him.
