Fourteen new charges have been laid against a Durham Region teacher already facing multiple allegations of sexually assaulting students.

Thomas Grieve is now accused of 15 counts of criminal sexual conduct with children under the age of 16, according to information released Tuesday, April 17 by Durham police.

Grieve, an elementary teacher at Robert Munsch Public School in Whitby, was arrested in mid-March on eight counts each of sexual assault and sexual interference. After more allegations surfaced, Grieve was charged with an additional seven counts each of sexual assault and sexual interference, police said.

Sexual interference is described in the Criminal Code as touching or inviting touching from someone under 16 for a sexual purpose.

“It is alleged the teacher was involved in inappropriate relations with some of his students during school hours,” police said in a media release.

Grieve also coached the female under-18 team for the Durham Rebels Volleyball Club. He previously taught at E.A. Fairman Public School in Whitby and various schools as a supply teacher. He has also taught night school and summer school at numerous secondary schools.  (more...)
