Former teacher charged with 90 sexual assault offences

A former teacher has been charged with 90 offences over the alleged historic sexual abuse of more than a dozen young students at a Sydney school over three decades.

The teacher is accused of sexually abusing 14 boys while working at a school in Earlwood over the course of three decades between 1978 and 1994.

Investigations into the teacher began four years ago in 2017 when allegations were made about sexual and physical abuse by the former teacher.

Police yesterday executed a search warrant at a home at Yowie Bay about 8am yesterday and arrested a 64-year-old man.

He was charged with a total of 90 offences, including multiple counts of each sex assault (indecent assault) of a person under 16 and under authority, indecent assault on male, indecent act with male, incite aggravated indecency-victim under 16 and under authority, solicit male or incite male to commit indecent act, attempt to solicit or incite male to commit indecent act and common assault.

The victims were aged between seven and eight at the time of the alleged offences.

The man has been refused bail and is due to appear before the court today.

Police continue to encourage any person who has been a victim of any kind of sexual violence, no matter how long ago the incident occurred, to report it.
