    Former teacher faces child-porn charges

    A Toronto man who worked for local Jewish elementary schools was arrested after he was allegedly spotted watching child porn on a public computer at an employment and social services centre. Employees at the Lawrence Square office, located in the Lawrence Ave. W. and Allen Rd. area, noticed a man viewing pornographic images of children from a portable disk drive, Toronto Police said. The workers called police, but the man took off. The child exploitation unit executed a search warrant at a North York home Wednesday and arrested Stephen Joseph Schacter, 55, who faces one count of possession of child ...



    Elias Levy, the executive director of Eitz Chaim, couldn’t be reached Friday, but Claire Sumerlus, the head of Robbins Hebrew Academy — formerly United Synagogue Day School — said parents of the 360 students from junior kindergarten to Grade 8 and student alumni have been notified of the investigation.

    “We’re still conducting an internal review just to determine the facts,” she said. “We want to ensure parents the screening process for potential employees is extremely stringent.”

    She said Schacter worked at two now-defunct campuses — the Richmond Hill campus from 2005 to 2006 as a supply teacher, and the Bayview campus from 2006 to 2009, in the office and as a supply teacher when needed.

    “He left the school in 2009 and we’re still conducting a review as to understand the circumstances around his departure,” she said. “It’s always disheartening to hear that anyone’s been charged with child pornography.”

    Police provide update on case of ex-teacher charged with possessing child porn

    A former North York elementary school teacher is facing several charges after police say three former students came forward with allegations of sexual abuse. An investigation was launched in December 2015 after investigators say the man was allegedly found viewing images of child pornography on a public computer at the Employment and Social Service Centre at Lawrence Square. After executing a search warrant at the suspect’s home, police allege that images of child pornography were found in his possession and charges were laid.



    Upon further investigation, police say it came to light that the man had been a teacher and an office administrator at various Toronto private schools over the last 30 years. Investigators say there is some indication that staff at at least one of the schools where he was employed had been aware of allegations that he was sexually inappropriate with some of his students.

    Investigators say the suspect, identified as 55-year-old Stephen Joseph Schacter, had worked as a primary school teacher at the Eitz Chaim schools between 1986 and 2004, an office administrator at the United Synagogue Day School between 2004 and 2006 and also worked as a teaching assistance for grades 1 and 2 students at Pleasant Avenue Public School in 2004.

    He also worked as a private tutor from 2009 to 2011, police say.

    According to investigators, media coverage of the case prompted three complainants to come forward with allegations of sexual abuse stemming from incidents that allegedly took place in the 1980s and 1990s.


    “It is alleged that Mr. Schacter had ready access to these children as a result of his teaching positions and his status in the community,” Det.-Const. Joel Manherz told reporters at a news conference Monday morning. “I believe there are victims that have come forward to the schools who have made reports to them and that those are not the victims we have identified so far.” He encouraged any other possible victims to “find the courage” to come forward. “Some victims may believe that what happened to them will have no impact on the case, but that is simply not ...

    Ex-elementary teacher facing sexual assault, child porn charges


    A former Toronto elementary school teacher is facing additional charges after three people came forward to report alleged inappropriate behaviour.

    Toronto police said Monday that three victims contacted investigators after the teacher was charged with possession of child pornography late last year.

    The victims told police that the teacher had been sexually inappropriate with them in the 1980s and 1990s. At the time, they were in elementary school, police said.

    As a result of an ongoing investigation, 55-year-old Stephen Joseph Schacter has been charged with two counts of sexual assault. He has also been charged with sexual interference, sexual exploitation and gross indecency.


    In December, Schacter was charged with possession of child pornography, after a man was caught viewing child pornography at an employment centre the month before. Police said Schacter is a former elementary school teacher, who worked at the Eitz Chaim schools between 1986 and 2004. He also worked as an office administrator at the United Synagogue Day School from 2005 to 2009, and was a private tutor from 2009 to 2011.

Stephen Joseph Schacter, 55, was initially arrested on Dec. 16, 2015 after police executed a search warrant at his home in North York. An investigation commenced after the accused was allegedly caught viewing child pornography on a computer at an Employment and Social Services Centre at Lawrence Square on Nov. 6, 2015. He was charged with one count of possession of child pornography.



    Schacter was arrested again on Feb. 24 in relation to three victims police say he had “ready access” to as a teacher in the 1980s and 1990s.

    He has been charged with two counts of sexual assault, sexual interference, sexual exploitation and gross indecency.

    Police are urging anyone who may have been a victim to come forward.


    “Some victims may believe that what happened to them will have not impact on the case. But that is simply not true. There is power in numbers,” said Det. Const. Joel Manherz during a press conference Monday morning. Police said the accused was an elementary school teacher at the Eitz Chaim schools between 1986 and 2004. Schacter was a primary teaching assistant for Pleasant Avenue Public School in 2004. He was also an administrator at the United Synagogue Day School between 2005 and 2009 and also worked as a private tutor from 2009 until 2011. Police said evidence seized during ...

    Former teacher faces more child porn charges: Toronto Police

    Police laid sex charges against a former Toronto teacher already facing accusations of possessing child pornography. Stephen Joseph Schacter, 55, was an elementary school teacher for Eitz Chaim schools, between 1986 and 2004, and an office administrator at the United Synagogue Day School, between 2005 and 2009. In November, 2015 police were called after a man allegedly viewed child pornography on a public computer at the Employment and Social Services Centre at Lawrence Square. In December, police executed a search warrant at a North York home and charged Schacter with possession of child pornography.



    On Monday, police announced that three complainants came forward and last week Schacter was arrested and charged with two counts of sexual assault, gross indecency and sexual interference and exploitation.

    “(Schacter) had access to these children because of his status in the community,” said Det. Const. Joel Manherz, who added the allegations centre around assaults on children in primary grades in the 1980s and 1990s.

    He wouldn’t reveal the sex of the alleged victims.


    “There are some indications reports may have been made to the schools, but not by these three (complainants) identified,” said Manherz, adding schools have an obligation to contact police in such cases. No one at Eitz Chaim could be reached for comment.
