A former Ottawa teacher faces 14 criminal charges related to child sexual assaults that took place in the 1970s and 1980s.
Ottawa Police began investigating former Ottawa-Carleton District School Board teacher Donald Greenham, 73, in June after a victim came forward alleging abuse between 1970 and 1982.
Police said three men and one woman are known victims, but there could be others.
The 14 charges include gross indecency, indecent assault on a male and indecent assault on a female, in keeping with the criminal code of the time.
Police said the victims were between 14 and 17 years old at the time, and the “multiple incidents” took place while Greenham was on duty as a teacher and a coach.
He was scheduled to appear in court Monday.
Anyone with information should contact the sexual assault and child abuse unit at 613-236-1222 ext. 5944, or anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
