Retired teacher, 73, faces more charges of sex assault against students

A former Ottawa high school basketball coach and teacher currently facing dozens of charges of sexual assault against 11 students more than 30 years ago is now facing more charges.

On Thursday, Ottawa police investigators arrested and charged Donald Greenham, 73, of Addison, Ont., with six new criminal offences, including gross indecency and indecent assault on a male, as per Criminal Code charges that existed at the time of the alleged offences.

The investigation began June 20 when a victim came forward to report the abuse in Ottawa and out of town between 1972 and 1975. The charges relate to several incidents involving 13- and 14-year-old victims and occurred while Greenham worked as a guidance counsellor and coach with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board.

Greenham was released on bail in August on 14 charges related to gross indecency and indecent assault charges against four students between 1970 and 1982 while he was employed as a teacher and coach. The three boys and one girl were between 14 and 17 years old at the time of the alleged offences.

In October, Greenham was arrested again on three dozen more charges involving seven alleged victims aged 13 to 18 when the offences allegedly occurred from 1971 to 1981.  (more...)
