Jail, sex registry for assault in Brockville
BROCKVILLE — A former Brockville high school teacher found guilty on two charges was sentenced Thursday to a year in jail and placed on the sex offender registry.
Dave Rancourt, a former teacher at St. Mary Catholic High School, was sentenced in front of a full courtroom on Thursday after previously being found guilty on one count of sexual exploitation and one count of sexual assault in July.
Ontario Superior Court Justice John Johnston said the offences for which Rancourt was convicted occurred over a five-year period, beginning when the victim was a minor and continued after she turned 18.
The offences include actions the judge described at sentencing as being for “the sexual gratification of Mr. Rancourt.” (more...)
