RCMP say they have charged a former care-home worker in alleged sexual assaults going back as far as 30 years.

Mounties say they received a report last month with complaints about a one-time employee at a home in Hepburn, Sask., about 55 kilometres north of Saskatoon.

Police say it’s alleged that between 1992 and 2009, five adult residents were sexually assaulted by a male staff member.

RCMP say the man has not worked at the home since 2009.

Charged is Brent Gabona, who is 52, from Waldheim, Sask.

He faces five counts of sexual assault and three counts of sexual exploitation of a person with a disability.
