A supply teacher fancied himself a top-notch educator, but a judge found him to be nothing more than an opportunistic pervert who groped five Grade 3 girls for sexual thrills.
Yousef Chaouni-Benabdallah, 49, almost got away with it.
He'd been called in for a friendly chat with Ottawa Police Det. Joanne Marelic after two young girls at Ecole Odysee claimed Chaouni, as he is known, had gotten touchy-feely with them upon getting them alone at some point in December 2010.
But Chaouni, cool as ice, had answers for everything and Marelic reluctantly closed the file on March 13, 2011.
