Stuckless was convicted in 1997 for sex assaults on 24 boys while he was an usher at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens between 1969 and 1988.

In the past year several more men have come forward to allege Stuckless abused them decades ago, leading to the fresh wave of charges.

Stuckless is facing 38 charges relating to 10 complainants in Toronto and another 34 charges from York Region, north of Toronto, where seven men have made complaints against him.

He is set to appear in court Thursday in Toronto, where all of the charges from both regions are being tried together.
