Charges were laid on Monday against Phillip Flynn.  The assault is alleged to have occurred several years ago.

The teacher was released from custody under conditions that include no contact with anyone under the age of 18 unless another adult is in the same room.

Flynn is scheduled to appear in court in Kimmirut Aug. 27.
