Gordon Stuckless due in court today
TORONTO - A man at the centre of the Maple Leaf Gardens sex abuse scandal is due in court today to face new charges relating to alleged assaults on young boys.
Gordon Stuckless, 63, was convicted in 1997 for sex assaults on 24 boys while he was an usher at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto between 1969 and 1988.
Toronto police say two people _ now grown men _ have come forward to allege that Stuckless sexually assaulted them on several occasions.
Stuckless was volunteering at a community centre and sports clubs at the time and police allege the assaults happened there and at other locations in Toronto.
Stuckless was charged last month with six counts of indecent assault on a male, assault and possession of a weapon or imitation.
In 1997 Stuckless was sentenced to two years less a day, which was later increased to five years, then paroled in 2001 after serving two-thirds of his sentence.
