Convicted sex offender Gordon Stuckless faces more charges

Convicted sex offender Gordon Stuckless is facing 23 new charges, York regional police said Wednesday.

The charges were added after five more alleged victims came forward.

Stuckless, 64, now faces more than 70 offences, stemming from the late 1960s into the 1980s, and police believe there could be more victims.

During that time, police say, Stuckless was in contact with young boys in schools and minor sport leagues in Toronto, Thornhill and Oak Ridges. He may have also contacted young boys while working at a summer hockey camp in Haliburton County.

York regional police began investigating Stuckless in February and arrested him in March. He was re-arrested after five more men came forward on Tuesday.

Toronto police are also investigating historical complaints against Stuckless.  All of the charges will be heard together.

Stuckless was convicted in 1997 for sexually assaulting 24 boys while he was an usher at the Maple Leaf Gardens hockey arena. He served two-thirds of his sentences before being paroled in 2001.

He will appear in court on Thursday.
