The Calgary Police have laid additional charges against a youth worker in connection with a sexually assault incident which occurred in 2018.
“We have laid additional charges against a youth worker previously charged in January after another victim was identified,” the Calgary Police said in a statement.
The statement further added that the Calgary Police began investigating a complaint from a male victim in January 2021, we who alleged that starting in 2018, when he was 16 years old, he had been sexually assaulted on multiple occasions by a man employed as his youth worker in a program with Hull Services.
On Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2021, police charged Sean MAHEU, 39, with sexual assault and sexual exploitation, the Calgary Police said, adding that he will next appear in court on Thursday, Dec. 16, 2021.
Staff Sergeant Michelle Doyle with the Calgary Police Service Sexual Assault Investigative Unit said “We acknowledge that it can be very confusing for a young person experiencing exploitation by someone in a position of trust.”
“In this instance, the victim reported assaults that began in 2018 and we want to ensure people are aware that there is no time limit for victims to report a sexual assault in Canada,” Sgt. Doyle added.
