How to help a young girl at the centre of the ‘WtW’ child abuse scandal
A group of Ontario children’s rights activists have taken to social media to ask Ontarians to help them track down a former high school football player who allegedly assaulted a 12-year-old girl in his home in the 1970s.
The former player, now deceased, was convicted in 1993 of sexual assault against the girl and sentenced to three years in prison.
His former teammates and family members have since filed dozens of lawsuits against the province.
Last month, a former basketball player who accused him of sexually assaulting him as a boy told a court in Ontario that he had been abused by the former player.
The man, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution, was in court for the trial of a case against the former football player, who is now in his 60s.
He said the former high-school player repeatedly raped him in a room at his home when he was 12 years old.
He said he did not tell anyone until his mother discovered the abuse.
The lawyer for the former footballer said he is not happy with the outcome of the case and believes the former players’ legal team should have gone after the man.
“They should have been more aggressive and tried to find the truth,” he said.
This is not the time to pardon these people.””
They should be punished for what they did, not pardoned for what we did.”
This is not the time to pardon these people.
“The Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services (OCMS) said in a statement the former school player was charged in 1993 with sexual assault of a child.
The OCS statement said the alleged victim was 12 when the alleged attack took place.”
The OHS statement added that the OCS did not know about the alleged abuse when it made the decision to bring charges.”
