A Winnipeg martial arts instructor faces several years in prison after admitting he sexually abused three of his students.
King Yeung, 57, pleaded guilty in court Wednesday to a total of five sexual exploitation and sexual interference charges involving three female victims who took lessons as teenagers at Kang's Taekwondo Academy on McPhillips Street.
The former students came forward last spring with allegations Yeung had sexually assaulted them over a period of several years while he was their instructor.
He admitted this week to having sexual intercourse with two of the victims and sexually touching all three of them, starting off by buying them gifts and affording them special privileges at the taekwondo academy. In each case, Yeung started fondling the girls when they were 13 or 14 years old, sometimes waiting until they were on overnight trips attending out-of-town tournaments. (more...)
