Three people charged in alleged abuse of 17 children on Manitoba First Nation

Three people charged in alleged abuse of 17 children on Manitoba First Nation GARDEN HILL FIRST NATION, Man. — Two men and a foster mother have been charged after an investigation found at least 17 children were abused on a Manitoba First Nation. 

WARNING: Some readers may find the details in this story difficult to read.

A Calgary teacher, described as a "serial sexual predator" by the judge who is about to sentence him, will soon learn how long he will spend in prison.

Christian Sarile, 29, pleaded guilty to 17 charges involving the sexual abuse of 25 underage girls and one transgender boy over an eight-year period.

"He is clearly an admitted serial sexual predator who exploited and assaulted vulnerable children for his own sexual gratification and amusement," said Court of Queen's Bench Justice Earl Wilson as he began his scathing sentencing decision Friday morning.

Former Calgary fugitive sentenced to life in prison for murdering teenager

Former Calgary fugitive sentenced to life in prison for murdering teenager Nathan Gervais, the Calgarian who fled to Vietnam to avoid his first trial, has been sentenced to life in prison for killing Lukas Strasser-Hird, 18.

Wilson described Sarile as "evil, manipulative" and his actions as "relentless and callous."

Defence lawyer Yoav Niv proposed a 12- to 14-year sentence for his client, while prosecutor Martha O'Connor argued Sarile should spend 18 years in prison.

Grade 6 teacher

Sarile's victims ranged in age from 12 to 17 years old. He met them in various ways. Often, he paid the teens for oral sex.

When police first arrested Sarile in May 2017, he was a Grade 6 and music teacher.

Sarile admitted to paying his victims in money, drugs, alcohol and vaporizers in exchange for sex and nude photos.

His convictions include charges of sexual assault, paying minors for sexual services, sexual extortion, luring and making child pornography.

In several cases, Sarile would deliberately target children who were particularly vulnerable — girls who had troubles at home, mental health issues of substance abuse problems.

If his victims stopped sending sexual photos, Sarile would threaten them.

While pretending to be someone else, Sarile would contact his victims and threaten them if they did not perform sexual acts. Fearing he would distribute their nude photos, some of the girls gave in and had sexual contact with Sarile.

Sarile was first arrested on May 2, 2017, and immediately admitted to his crimes. After a press release was sent out by Calgary police, dozens of new complainants came forward.

After he was released on bail, Sarile sexually assaulted another 14-year-old girl and was rearrested on Dec. 7, 2017. He's been in custody ever since.
