0 0

It appears that Gordon Stuckless is about to plead guilty to more than 100 charges laid against him.

His lawyer says the convicted Maple Leaf Gardens pedophile will cop to 103 of the 108 charges next Tuesday at the Old City Hall Courthouse.

It means that 15 victims won't have to testify in court.

Ari Goldkind says there are 5 charges that Stuckless will plead not guilty to, because he denies they took place.

Back in 1997, Stuckless was convicted and sentenced to 5 years in prison for 572 sex acts committed.

Goldkind says he'll be asking for five years jail time for his client, but it is expected the Crown will seek dangerous offender status, which means Stuckless could spend an indefinite period of time behind bars.
