Ottawa supply teacher guilty of molesting grade school girls

OTTAWA — An Ottawa supply teacher was an opportunist who fulfilled his fantasies by sexually assaulting and touching his female Grade 3 students, a judge ruled Friday.

Ontario Superior Court Justice Paul Lalonde found the 53-year-old supply teacher Yousef Chaouni-Benabdallah guilty on 12 sexual-assault and touching charges involving five girls at two schools. He had pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.

Lalonde said he didn’t believe Chaouni and that his evidence had “many inconsistencies.”

“I find him to have been very opportunist as he quickly jumped on all occasions that presented themselves to sexually touch the complainants,” ruled the judge. “Whether he was alone with a student or was practising a lockdown or doing a science experiment in front of the class, he seized the moment to fulfil his fantasy.”  (more...)
