More information about a local volunteer sailing coach who’s facing sexual assault allegations.
Yesterday, Halton Police laid charges against 31 year old Sean Hewson of Ancaster —- after they were contacted by four young men who say they were between 13 and 16 years old when they were victimized.
All were members of the Burlington Sailing and Boating Club at LaSalle Park — where the accused volunteered for over 10 years as a sail boat race coach.
The YMCA of Hamilton, Burlington and Brantford now say that Hewson has been teaching lifesaving programs to both youth and adults since 2007.
He is now on a leave of absence from the Y.
The assaults are said to have occurred in the Burlington, Oakville, Nepean and Kingston areas.
