Former OPP officer accused of luring, sexually assaulting youth

A man who once served as a sworn member of the Ontario Provincial Police appeared in a Stratford court Friday on sexual assault and child luring charges.

John Stone was arrested Wednesday on a lengthy list of charges including sexual assault, sexual interference, child luring, indecent exposure and trafficking crystal meth.

Police allege that he committed those acts to more than one girl under the age of 18 – at least one of whom was younger than 16 – between 2012 and 2015.

Long before that, Stone spent a period of time as an OPP officer himself, working out of eastern Ontario.

“From what I can tell, he resigned from the force and only served five years,” Const. Kees Wijnands said from the police station in Sebringville.

“None of our officers ever worked with him or know him.”

According to a social media profile, Stone was a constable in Hastings County, east of Peterborough, from 1985 to 1991.

In court Friday, the Crown asked for Stone’s bail hearing to continue on Monday, based on potential new evidence and charges.

More charges could be laid at that point, prosecutors suggested.

That request was granted.

When the allegations against Stone were read out loud, the 53-year-old shook his head repeatedly.

A publication ban prevents reporting on details of evidence presented in the courtroom.

All charges laid thus far relate to incidents alleged to have taken place in the Listowel area.

Former OPP officer appears in court on sexual assault charge

Postby Thomas » Sat Jul 11, 2015 1:50 pm

A former provincial police officer appeared in an Ontario courthouse Friday, in a case of alleged sexual assault that has shocked the small town of Listowel, Ont.

Police arrested John Stone, 53, on Wednesday.

He faces a dozen charges, including sexual assault on a person under 16, sexual interference, indecent exposure, and child luring charges. He also faces one charge of drug trafficking.

Police say the charges involve multiple victims, but they will not specify how many.

Officers also say all of the alleged incidents happened in Listowel, Ont., a town of about 7,000 people.

Before moving to the town, Stone was once a member of the Ontario Provincial Police.

According to a LinkedIn profile under Stone’s name, he worked as a constable in Madoc, Ont., from 1985-1991.

The OPP confirmed that Stone once worked for the force.

"John Stone was once a provincial police officer, an OPP officer, 25 years ago," OPP Const. Kees Wijnands said. "From what I can tell, he resigned from the force and only served five years."

In court for a bail hearing on Friday, Stone shook his head as his charges were read aloud.

Based on potential new evidence, the Crown asked if the hearing could be extended to Monday.

Prosecutors suggested the possible evidence could lead to new charges.

The court granted the extension, and Stone is due back in court at 10 a.m. on Monday.

Former police officer accused of more sexual offences involving kids

Eighteen more sex-related charges and 12 drug trafficking charges have been laid against a Listowel-area resident.

John Stone, 53, was first charged with sexual offences in July.

Those charges related to multiple alleged cases of sexual assault and sexual interference, all of which involved underage girls.

Monday, police announced a new slate of charges against the former police officer.

He faces seven new counts apiece of sexual assault and sexual interference, two counts apiece of invitation to sexual touching and indecent exposure to a minor, 11 charges of crystal meth trafficking and one charge of cocaine trafficking.

All the offences are alleged to have occurred in 2014 and 2015.

Perth County OPP say he was released from custody on a promise to appear in court.

His next court date is scheduled for September.

Police say they want to hear from anyone with information about these incidents or others involving Stone.

Stone was a constable with the Ontario Provincial Police based in the Peterborough area from 1985 until 1991, according to a social media profile.
