Victims rip Gordon Stuckless sentence as 'a joke'

TORONTO - Angry victims shouted obscenities at Gardens sex predator Gordon Stuckless as he was led out of court in handcuffs Thursday after being sentenced to six and a half years for molesting 18 boys decades ago.

“My sentence will not undo the harm suffered,” Justice Mara Greene said as she passed sentence.

The 67-year-old former Maple Leaf Gardens employee, hockey and lacrosse coach, and teacher’s assistant pleaded guilty to 100 charges two years ago and was later convicted of two counts of gross indecency against two of the 18 victims.

“No sentence I impose will undo what the victims have suffered,” said Greene.

“It is staggering to think of how many lives Mr. Stuckless has harmed. He abused victims in places that should have been safe havens for young boys ... their homes, at school and at sporting complexes. He turned these places into a nightmare.”  (more...)
