Former Hamilton principal, teacher facing more sex charges

Whitby's John Leek has been charged with sexual assault, offences allegedly committeed
between June 1976 and December 1977. Police believe there may be more victims.
Three new alleged victims have come forward to police to levy accusations of sexual assault against a former principal, teacher and truancy counsellor with the Hamilton and Peel school boards who is now facing over two dozen sex-related charges.

Whitby resident John Leek, 70, was arrested last year on charges of indecent acts on a male and gross indecency between June 1976 and December 1977. Several of the incidents happened while he worked in Hamilton. Hamilton police announced Wednesday that three more alleged victims have come forward and claimed Leek sexually assaulted them as children.

Subsequent to his initial arrest, six people came forward in October and alleged they were child victims, leading to more charges. All of the accusations are historical, police say. On top of all his previous charges, Leek is now being charges with three counts of sexual assault on a male and three counts of gross indecency.  (more...)
