It is the offence that cuts into the hearts of parents whose children are sexually molested.

Parents trust their children to teachers, coaches and others that play a part in the growth and development of their children.

When a person in a position of trust and authority abuses that trust the reaction is one of total and complete revulsion, especially when there are young people involved.  All but impossible for a parent to look behind the abuse – it is foul, despicable and cuts to the core of what we as a society can bear.  Too much – punish.

The Halton Regional Police continue to investigate sexual assault allegations against Sean Hewson as additional victims have come forward.   Hewson was a Sailing Coach instructor.

On Tuesday, May 27th, 2014, Halton Police laid an additional sexual assault and sexual interference charge against Sean Hewson.

The Court has imposed a publication ban which was put in place on May 23rd, 2014.

Mr. Hewson has been remanded to Thursday the 29th of May, 2014 where police will be laying more charges in relation to a sixth victim.

The Halton Regional Police encourage anyone with information to contact D/Sergeant John Mans, Child Abuse and Sexual Assault Bureau at  905 465-8760.

The community’s task now is to aid in the investigation and to be part of the healing and recovery of those assaulted.  This is a very hard time for many.

    Just though I would point out a typo. Didn’t think to check who’s byline it is first.

    In paragraph 3 my guess is that using “WORD” is a tool you use when you are still thinking about the actual word you are looking for.

    I hope I haven’t offended you. You have probably fixed this already. It’s so rare to see errors in your articles.

    \Editor’s note: You are quite correct in spotting my little writing tool – I sometimes forget to go back and pick up those “markers” Thanks for bringing this instance to my attention. Don’t feel badly – you are doing me a favour.
