Sex abuser sentenced

A former residential school supervisor and West End resident was sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexually abusing his students.

Paul Leroux, 58 pleaded guilty in a Northwest Territories court to nine counts of gross indecency. Justice John Vertes also found him guilty of three counts of indecent assault and one count of attempted buggery.

The 14 offences stem from Leroux's 12-year career at Grollier Hall, the last Catholic residential school to close in Canada.

Leroux, who also has served as a justice of the peace and complaints investigator for the Canadian Human Rights Commission, is the third former supervisor at Grollier Hall to be convicted of sexual abuse.
