Former teacher accused of sexually assaulting two children

A former teacher and convicted sex offender is facing new charges of sexually abusing two children in the 1980s.

Ottawa police charged Gerald Rene Levert with three counts of sexual assault and one count of gross indecency last week in the alleged sexual abuse that occurred in Ottawa between 1983 and 1989. At the time, Levert was a teacher with the now defunct Ottawa-Carleton Catholic School Board.

Police said they did not initially release that the 67-year-old Levert was a teacher when they announced the charges because the allegations did not involve any of his students. Police laid the charges after a complainant came forward in February.

It is just the latest legal trouble for the former teacher, who once taught at St. Matthew Catholic High School in Orleans and later at St. Leonard Elementary School in Manotick from 1992 to 1998. Levert had also taught at École intermédiaire Léo-D-Côté  in Orléans in 1975, and started working with the Ottawa-Carleton Catholic School Board in 1982.  (more...)
