7 St. Mikes students to appear in court Monday

NEWS STAFF | posted Monday, Jan 28th, 2019

Seven students from St. Michael’s College School are due in court Monday morning to face numerous sex assault charges.

The charges stem from a number of alleged incidents police say involved the school’s football team and took place at the prestigious Toronto private school last fall.

The students face a total of 37 charges in the case.

Police began investigating the alleged incidents after CityNews received a tip and a video of an alleged assault back in November and reached out to authorities for details.

The video, which has been viewed by CityNews, shows a teen in his underwear in a sink being splashed with water and slapped on bare skin by several other boys.

Police investigated another video of an alleged group sexual assault in a school locker room involving a broomstick. Police said that video met the definition of child porn.

Police investigated a total of eight different incidents and three of those occurrences resulted in criminal charges being laid against the seven students.

All students who are facing charges are currently out on bail.
