A former Brant County councillor is facing  sex assault charges.

61 year old Leonard Bekendam has been charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual interference involving two victims aged 14 and 15.

Police say a teen went to an address in central Hamilton in March where he was sexually assaulted.

During their investigation police also learned another young person had been sexually assaulted at the same address on multiple occasions dating back to December of 2017.

According to the Brantford Expositor this isnt the first brush with the law for Bekendam.

He pleaded guilty to multiple sex related charges in 2013 involving 10 victims.
