    Toronto Observer: Music teacher charged with sexual assault of girl (Nov 2 2010)

Brian Bolliger, 54, of Toronto, is facing charges of sexual assault and sexual interference.

    Earlier acquittal:

    Toronto Star: Drum teacher acquitted of fondling student (Sept 21 2011)

    A former Canadian rock drummer has been found not guilty of fondling a little girl while giving her music lessons.
    “I am not satisfied that the Crown has proven the offence beyond a reasonable doubt for a number of reasons,” provincial court Justice William Bassel said Wednesday

    ...

    Bolliger was once a drummer with True Myth, a progressive rock group formed in London, Ont., which put out two albums in 1979 and 1981. He had been a music teacher for 29 years. For more than two years, Bolliger gave the girl weekly drum lessons at Scarboro Music Company on Kingston Rd. But on Oct. 12, 2010, she complained to her mother, saying: “Brian is touching me,” court heard. The Crown suggested at Bolliger’s trial that he put his hand down the girl’s pants and shirt while she practised the drums in his studio

    ...

    The girl, now 9, testified Bolliger’s touching made her very uncomfortable, but she also said it only happened when she was playing on his set of drums, as opposed to the kit she usually used, Murphy said during the trial. Yet the girl continued to ask to use his drums, which doesn’t make sense if she was worried about being fondled, Murphy had told the judge. The girl, known to be confident, happy-go-lucky and speaking her mind, nevertheless waited 2½ years to disclose the touching she claimed happened at almost every weekly lesson, Murphy added.
