2 more gross indecency charges laid against former Ottawa teacher

A former Ottawa teacher now faces 10 historical sexual assault charges involving seven victims after police laid two new gross indecency charges Tuesday.

The new charges against Robert Clarke, 72, of Morrisburg, Ont., involve alleged offences against two people that happened between 1973 and 1992 while Clarke was performing his teaching duties, Ottawa police said.

Police first charged Clarke with one count of sexual assault in June 2016  after one of his former students said that he was inappropriately touched while Clarke was a teacher with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board in the 1980s.

In July, police laid two additional charges of sexual assault, four charges of gross indecency, and one charge of sexual exploitation against Clarke after four more people came forward.  (more...)
