Police charge Sudbury, Ont., high school teacher with additional sex offenses

SUDBURY, Ont. – Police say a teacher at a Catholic high school in Sudbury, Ont., is facing additional charges related to allegations of inappropriate behavior and touching involving underage students.

Police said they received a complaint in June about a St. Charles College teacher and students under the age of 16, and charged a 56-year-old man that month with two counts of sexual assault and of sexual contact.

Investigators say they received more complaints and have now charged the suspect with five more counts of sexual assault and sexual interference.

Police released few details of the alleged incidents to protect the identities of the complainants.

They say a former school administrator has also been charged with criminal negligence and failure to provide the necessities of life as part of the investigation.

Police say they believe the students attempted to report the incidents to the school administration.

The former administrator, a 40-year-old man, was released and is due back in court in early November. The teacher, meanwhile, appeared in court on Thursday to face the new charges.
