New charges in sex case

A former justice of the peace, human-rights investigator and Big Brother was hit with eight new sex charges involving teen-aged boys at a court appearance yesterday. Paul Leroux, who reserved his plea, now faces a total of 40 charges related to alleged incidents at a dormatory he supervised more than 20 years ago. The new charges arose from interviews with hundreds of former residents of Grollier Hall, which housed students aged 5 - 19 and was supervised by lay employees of the Roman Catholic church until the mid 1980's. Students stayed at the hostel while attending school in Inuvik, about 1,000 kilometres northwest of Yellowknife. There are now 19 former residents claiming to be victims.
