Sudbury Catholic District School Board said the man who is facing charges of sexual assault and sexual exploitation at Bishop Carter Alexander is no longer employed, said a spokesperson in an email to Sudbury.com.

"We take these allegations very seriously and it is being addressed by the authorities," said board spokesperson Erin Kendall in an email. "As this is a personnel matter and an active police investigation, it would be inappropriate for us to provide further comment.

A 38-year-old man faces sexual assault and exploitation charges involving a student at high school. He was arrested Jan. 5, said Greater Sudbury Police Service.

On Dec. 16, 2021, GSPS received a call regarding a potential sexual assault involving a youth and a staff member of Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School, said GSPS spokesperson Kaitlyn Dunn, in an email.

He is charged with sexual assault, sexual exploitation and luring a young person under 18 years of age. He was released on an undertaking and is scheduled to attend court on March 16.

His name cannot be released as the information has not yet been sworn to through the court process.

Due to the sensitive nature of this incident and in order to protect the identity of the survivor, no further details will be provided, said GSPS.
