CPS said they began an investigation in January after a man complained that he had been sexually assaulted several times by his youth worker in a program with Hull Services. The alleged victim said the attacks began in 2018 when he was 16, a press release said on Thursday.

“We acknowledge that it can be very confusing for a young person experiencing exploitation by someone in a position of trust,” Staff Sgt Michelle Doyle told the Calgary Police Service Sexual Assault Investigative Unit, in a press release. “” In this case, the victim reported assaults that began in 2018, and we want to make sure people are aware that there is no time limit for victims to report sexual assault in Canada. “

Sean Maheu, 39, was charged with sexual assault and sexual exploitation. He is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, December 16.

Maheu was previously charged in January with sexual assault, sexual interference, an invitation to sexual touching and sexual exploitation.

Those allegations stem from allegations that he attacked a 14-year-old while he was coaching basketball with the Genesis Basketball League.
