Stuckless trial begins
Pleaded guilty to 100 counts related to sex abuse but not guilty to 8 others
0 0

One of Gordon Stuckless's victims is telling a Toronto court how the sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of the man at the centre of the Maple Leaf Gardens scandal ruined his life.

Stuckless pleaded guilty last month to 100 charges related to the sexual abuse of 18 underage boys decades ago, including the man testifying today.

But he pleaded not guilty to another eight charges involving some of those victims.

The man, who was 11 at the time and cannot be identified, described some of the abuse, including an incident in which Stuckless allegedly pressed a blade to his neck while molesting him.

The Crown is expected to request a dangerous offender assessment for Stuckless, but his lawyer says it's not warranted since his client has been living a ``very law-abiding life.''

Stuckless pleaded guilty in 1997 to sex assaults on two dozen boys while he was an usher at Maple Leaf Gardens.
