The sex assault case involving seven students from St. Michael’s College School has been put over until Feb. 25.

At a short hearing on Monday, the Crown said they provided some disclosure in the case but more is still to come.

The charges stem from a number of alleged incidents police say involved the school’s football team and took place at the prestigious Toronto private school last fall.

The students face a total of 37 charges in the case.

Police began investigating the alleged incidents after CityNews received a tip and a video of an alleged assault back in November and reached out to authorities for details.

The video, which has been viewed by CityNews, shows a teen in his underwear in a sink being splashed with water and slapped on bare skin by several other boys.

Police investigated another video of an alleged group sexual assault in a school locker room involving a broomstick. Police said that video met the definition of child porn.

Police investigated a total of eight different incidents and three of those occurrences resulted in criminal charges being laid against the seven students.

All students who are facing charges are currently out on bail.
