Since that time four more people have come forward with incidents that allegedly occurred while the accused was teaching.
As a result, the man now faces two more charges of sexual assault, four charges of gross indecency and one charge of sexual exploitation.
He is expected to make his next court appearance on Aug. 22.
“The Ottawa police will respect a victim’s wishes to pursue or not pursue the matter before the courts,” said Staff Sgt. Angela McDade in a statement.
“The reporting of these incidents by victims to police is key for investigators to identify suspects and determine crime trends.”
