A former London resident with a history of involvement in youth activities faces more than a dozen sex-related charges.

Guelph police charged Leigh Taylor with sexual assault and sexual interference in March after launching an investigation earlier this year.

Leigh, 64, was charged with 12 more offences related to four complainants, including five counts of sexual assault, sexual interference and three counts of exposure to a person under 16 and three counts of indecent acts, Guelph police said Wednesday.

The most recent charges related to incidents that happened in the Guelph area, but Leigh has also lived in London, Windsor and Toronto, police said.

Leigh was active in community activities that involved children and youth, police said.

“The investigation continues as there is no statute of limitations on crimes of this nature,” police said in a release.

Anyone with information related to the investigation should contact Det-Const. Patty Pronovost at 519-824-1212 ext. 7203 or Anonymous tips can be left at 1-800-222-8477 or submitted online at
