A Toronto Catholic School Teacher Has Just Been Charged With Sexual Assault
Catholic school teacher Brian Ross, 36, has just been charged with sexual assault.
Toronto Police have just released a sexual assault alert in relations to a teacher who was arrested on March 6, 2019. The arrest was made by members of Sex Crimes- Child & Youth Advocacy Centre in a connection with an investigation of a sexual assault of a young person. Catholic school teacher Brian Ross, 36, was charged with sexual assault and sexual interference and is now scheduled to appear in court in May.
Brian Ross is a teacher within the Toronto Catholic School Board and was involved in coaching athletics throughout his career. He taught in two different secondary schools, Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School from Sept 1, 2006- Aug 31, 2016, and Senator O'Connor College School from Sept 1, 2016- February 18, 2019.
The Sex Crimes- Child & Youth Advocacy Centre launched an investigation after there were reports of Ross sexually assaulting a young 15-year-old girl. Last Wednesday, the Sex Crimes department was able to make the arrest and charge Ross with both sexual assault and sexual interference.
While the name of the victim has not been released, Toronto Police can confirm that it's alleged Ross met with a 15-year-old girl before he drove her to his home. Ross was reported to be driving the girl to his home to discuss school issues. However, during the visit, it is alleged that Ross sexually assaulted the female.
The Toronto Police define sexual assault as "any form of unwanted sexual contact". This can include a variety of actions that occur without the consent of both parties.
Ross is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, May 3, 2019, at 2 p.m. at 1911 Eglinton Ave.
