A 74-year-old former Ottawa teacher is facing a new charge of gross indecency for allegedly groping a male student in the late 1970s at Bell High School.

For decades, Bob Clarke taught music at Bell and Sir Robert Borden High Schools in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board.

In March, Clarke pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault and gross indecency involving eight former students, and is currently serving a two-year sentence in the Joyceville federal institution.

Court heard he inappropriately touched, propositioned or sexually assaulted several teenage boys in the 1970s, '80s and '90s in the classroom, on band trips and outside school.  (more...)
