Kings University Professor Facing Sexual Abuse Charges

In Yukon’s territorial court last month, David Norton, a former professor at King’s University College and an Anglican clergyman, was charged with four counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual interference.

Norton is presently incarcerated for 13 years after being found guilty of assaulting two congregations of Indigenous boys in London when he was a parish priest.

The four men Norton assaulted as youths testified in his trial that he groomed, mistreated, and molested them at his house in London. Norton was originally accused in 2015 in London.

Norton was accused while instructing a first-year totalitarianism course, even though the misconduct occurred when he was not on the school’s payroll. Following the initial accusations in 2015, King’s put Norton on and he later resigned.

Norton received a nine-year jail term after being found guilty. Three counts of indecent assault and one case of sexual assault were brought against him. Norton was sentenced to four years in jail after entering a guilty plea to sexual interference in a different case involving a minor from St. Mark’s church in London in the early 1990s seven months earlier.

Norton later took a job in the Yukon after resigning from St. Andrew’s Church in London in 1983. Between 1983 and 1985, there are said to have been many attacks in the Yukon.

On November 3, Norton is scheduled to appear in court once more in the Yukon.
