Three former students from St . Michael ’ s College School in Toronto have pleaded guilty to sexual assault offences that occurred at the prestigious institution. As Eric Sorensen reports, the crimes threw the private all-boys Catholic school into an unsavoury spotlight.

Reached by the Star on Thursday, St. Michael’s said it had no comment on the guilty pleas.

Last November, a police investigation was prompted by media reports about the video shared on social media that showed the sexual assault of a student with what appeared to be a broomstick in a school locker room.

None of the students who were charged and the two victims can be identified under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Six students, all in their early teens, were charged with assault, gang sexual assault and sexual assault with a weapon in connection with the Nov. 7 2018 incident.

After a further police investigation, four of the same boys and another student were charged in another alleged gang sexual assault involving a different victim in October 2018. It was described by police as similar to the videotaped incident. Two boys were also charged with assault and assault with a weapon in a third incident in September 2018 involving the same victim.

School boards plan closures as CUPE strike deadline looms

  School boards plan closures as CUPE strike deadline looms A growing number of boards across the province — including two of the largest in the GTA — are warning that elementary and secondary schools will be closed Monday if the province’s 55,000 caretakers, office staff, early childhood educators and educational assistants go on strike. School closures would impact thousands of parents and leave many scrambling to find alternate accommodations for their children, if members of Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) hit the picket lines. Boards are saying they cannot guarantee student safety and will close schools to students for the duration of the strike.

TORONTO – Three former students of a prestigious Toronto private school have pleaded guilty in a sex assault scandal that rocked the institution. After the alleged assaults were made public, former students came forward with their stories of bullying at St . Mike ’ s dating back decades.

All seven students facing charges were released on bail the same day as they were arrested.

Charges against of one of the students charged in the November 2018 incident were withdrawn in August because the Crown said there was no reasonable prospect of conviction.

The cases against two other students, one charged in the November 2018 incident and one charged in the October 2018 incident, have also ended. However, according to the Ministry of the Attorney General, the outcomes require a judge’s order to be made public, as there were no reporters present in courtroom at the time the cases concluded.

The case involving one student remains unresolved.

The police investigation prompted the administration of the grade 7-12 school of more than 1,000 students to launch an internal review of culture and policies. It found that bullying is a “systemic issue” at the school, as it is at others across the country, but that “hazing” was not a prominent part of school culture. The football team was suspended last year and was reinstated with new safeguards this fall.
