Former teacher to be sentenced

73-year-old Michael Slater was found guilty of historic sexual assault

A former teacher, now 73 years old, will learn his fate today, after being convicted of sexually assaulting two students in events dating back to 1968.

In March, a jury found Michael Slater guilty of gross indecency, indecent assault, and buggery involving two students.

One of the victims, whose name is covered by a publication ban, testified that he was raped between 1968 and 1970 at Elizabeth Park school, and at a home in Alta Vista.

Elizabeth Park school was operated by the Department of National Defense at Canadian Forces Base Uplands in the 1960s.

The victim feared reporting the assaults as a teenager, and didn't come forward to police until 2009.
