A former residential school supervisor convicted of sexually abusing multiple victims is being released from prison on day parole, according to a ruling by the Parole Board of Canada.
Paul Leroux, 76, was serving a seven year and ten month sentence for sexually abusing multiple boys at Beauval Indian Residential School.
The parole board’s decision, obtained by APTN National News, states that for nearly a decade between 1959 and 1967 Leroux committed sexual abuse involving “fondling, fellatio and intercourse” with multiple male victims as young as 11-years-old in Beauval, Sask.
But, that wasn’t his first sentence.
Leroux had served a previous sentence for sexually abusing several males at Grollier Hall, a residential school in Inuvik, NT, where he was also a supervisor.
In 1998, Leroux was sentenced to serve 10 years for attempted buggery, attempted indecent assault, nine counts of gross indecency and three counts of indecent assault that occurred between 1967 and 1979.
Leroux will be transferred to a halfway house and placed on day parole until July 2016 when he is eligible for full parole.
Leroux still denies that he abused any of the boys at Beauval Indian Residential School.
