    Police told CTV Toronto Monday that they now believe the same man is involved in a series of sex assaults along Yonge Street that began on Sept. 2

    “These two cases with the two different pictures we do believe is the same individual.

    Hopefully his Korean students were older than the 14, 15, and 16 year old girls he is alleged to have sexually assaulted, imo.
    http://news.nationalpost.com/toronto...d-14-15-and-16

    Toronto police allege that three girls — aged 14, 15 and 16 — were targeted in public places such as subway stations and a food court and sexually assaulted.
    Jean-Alexandre De Bousquet said Lesieur worked with his firm for a few weeks this summer before leaving for another firm in the city.
    “I am very surprised by this,” De Bousquet said of the charges. “He always struck me as a mild-mannered law-abiding citizen. He’s a very peaceful person.”
    A Francois David Lesieur is listed in the Law Society of Upper Canada’s directory as a practising lawyer with the firm LeSieur Law, which is located at Yonge and Bloor streets.
    LeSieur Law “focuses primarily on cross-border business and immigration issues,” according to its website.
    LeSieur is from Ottawa and started his own practice in 2013, according to a biography on the website, which also says he plays hockey and has a black belt in taekwondo. The website also says he worked for Federal Court of Appeal for five years.

    He was a law professor so his students were likely in their 20s. Although that doesn't mean he didn't have access to younger children as well. Speculation but a lot of people go to Korea to teach English - he might have volunteered for something like that.

    Why on earth would this guy allegedly assault girls practically outside his place of business? The other area of alleged activity, was at Yonge& Eg. right near the police station.
    Why would a educated, decent looking young guy, with a good job take such chances when he surely knew he would be spotted on cctv and caught?!
    Hate to think of what he may have done when he was not in such populated spots.
    imo, speculation.

    TORONTO - A Toronto lawyer accused of sexually assaulting three teenage girls has had his licence temporarily suspended.

    The Law Society Tribunal says Francois Lesieur won't be allowed to practise law until he has a chance to respond to a motion brought forward Tuesday morning by the Law Society of Upper Canada.
