Ottawa police have laid three more sexual assault charges against a 55-year-old teacher who used to work at St. Patrick’s High School in Alta Vista.

Robert Lavergne was previously charged mid-March with sexual assault and sexual exploitation of a young girl under 18 years of age.

Lavergne, who has been suspended from his teaching duties since February, is not in custody at the moment, a spokesperson for the Ottawa Police Service confirmed Thursday.

He is scheduled to appear in court on the new charges on June 27.

The first set of charges against Lavergne came after a police investigation “into sexual offences” that occurred at the local Catholic school between 2014 and 2016. Police said the three additional charges stem from “further reports of sexual assault” which allegedly occurred between 2004 and 2010. The new accusations relate to two alleged adult victims.  (more...)
