TORONTO — The man at the heart of the Maple Leaf Gardens sexual abuse scandal has died.
Gordon Stuckless was sentenced in 2016 to six and a half years behind bars — six after credit for his time on house arrest — for more than 100 offences related to the sexual abuse of 18 boys over three decades.
He was released to a halfway house on day parole in December.
Ari Goldkind, his lawyer, says Stuckless had a brain hemorrhage on Tuesday and died earlier tonight at a hospital in Hamilton, Ont.
