Former Scarborough music teacher accused of sexually exploiting a student

A man who used to teach music at Catholic high school in Scarbourough is accused of sexually exploiting a student.

Toronto Police officials say the charges were filed late last week but word of the arrest only came out on Friday.

60-year Michael Geremia was a teacher at St. John Paul ll Catholic Secondary, near Highway 401 and Morningside Avenue, from 1990 to 2012.

A former student has come forward with allegations that Geremia sexually exploited her on several occasions between July 1997 and May of 1998.

The student was 16 years old at the time.

Geremia has been released on bail with what authorities call "strict conditions."

Investigators will not rule out the possibility of more charges.

Geremia's case goes back to court late next month.
