However, Conseil scolaire catholique de district des Grandes-Rivières spokesman Richard Loiselle adds that the charge against 40-year-old David Gorman is not related to his job at Holy Canadian Martyrs School.  He has been relieved of his duties pending investigation.

In a release late last week, Kirkland Lake OPP said the lone charge was laid in relation to a complaint received on Sunday, November 3rd.  Gorman is a resident of Eby Township, near Kirkland Lake. He goes to court in early December.

Gorman is the second educator in our region to be charged with a criminal offence this fall.

In late September, then chairman of the Northeastern Catholic District School Board was charged with a child pornography offence.

Sixty-eight-year Rick Brassard was quickly removed from the board.
