Teacher charged with sex-related offences involving a student
(Ottawa) — The Ottawa Police Service Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Section has charged an Ottawa man employed as a teacher, following an investigation into allegations that he inappropriately touched one of his students.
On May 6, 2016, the Sexual Assault and Child Abuse unit charged Timothy STANUTZ, 56 years old, of Ottawa with Sexual Assault and Sexual Exploitation. The incidents occurred while the accused was in the course of his duties as a teacher, while employed by the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. He will appear in court today.
Officers are continuing with the investigation and are concerned there could be more victims.
“The Ottawa Police will respect a victim’s wishes to pursue or not pursue the matter before the courts,” said Staff Sergeant Angela McDade, SACA. “The reporting of these incidents by victims to police is key for investigators to identify suspects and determine crime trends.”
