TORONTO - Convicted Maple Leaf Gardens child molester Gordon Stuckless faces several more sex charges after an investigation that dates back to when he was a volunteer with a Toronto community centre almost three decades ago.

The 64-year-old Toronto man was arrested Friday morning.

He is charged with nine counts of indecent assault, five counts of gross indecency and buggery.

Police told media that five new victims have come forward since two approached police a few weeks ago.
In 1997, Stuckless was sentenced to five years. He was paroled in 2001.

Toronto was shocked by revelations that Stuckless, George Hanna and John Roby - the latter two now dead - used their jobs at Maple Leaf Gardens to lure and abuse young boys.

In 1995, Stuckless admitted to a psychiatrist that he had a sexual preference for adolescent boys and was diagnosed as a homosexual pedophile.

Stuckless said he was willing to undergo chemical castration and expressed remorse for the massive harm inflicted to dozens of victims.
