Sudbury Police Issue Warrant For Former St. Charles College Teacher, Principal - Updated

by The Sudbury Star

Greater Sudbury Police investigators have issued a warrant for the arrest of a former Sudbury teacher for allegedly sexually abusing six students more than 40 years ago.

In a release, police said Father William Marshall, 88, is wanted on six counts of gross indecency and six counts of indecent assault related to incidents alleged to have occurred from January 1960 to December 1970.

The victims are all students, police said, without identifying any schools. However, Marshall, is a former teacher and principal at St. Charles College. He taught there when the high school was an all-boys' school. Today, it is co-ed.

He is facing similar charges Windsor and Toronto.

Marshall was first charged in May with one count of sexual assault related to alleged incidents that occurred in Windsor in the early 1980s. Since then, 15 more people in Windsor, Sudbury and Toronto have come forward alleging they were also victimized by Marshall, the Windsor Star reported.

The newspaper also reported that Marshall will be tried in Windsor for charges there and those in Sudbury.

"The plan is to have them all transferred to this jurisdiction," said defence lawyer Andrew Bradie told the Windsor Star.

"The investigation began here," said Bradie, explaining why all the charges will be transferred to Windsor.

Bradie said Marshall, in addition to his age, is feeling the ill-effects of skin cancer.
