Man behind Maple Leaf Gardens sex abuse scandal should receive 12 years behind bars

TORONTO -- Prosecutors say the man at the heart of the Maple Leaf Gardens sex abuse scandal should spend 12 years behind bars for the trauma he inflicted on his young victims.

The Crown says Gordon Stuckless betrayed the trust of young boys he befriended and then abused, leaving them with lifelong emotional scars.

Crown attorney Kelly Beale called him a "prolific serial pedophile" whose actions turned his victims into "very damaged men."

Stuckless pleaded guilty in 2014 to 100 charges related to the sexual abuse of 18 boys decades ago.

He was later found guilty of two additional charges of gross indecency linked to two of the 18 victims.  (more...)
