Former midtown teacher busted for child porn

Brian Mallette taught at Northern SS, Forest Hill Collegiate

A Toronto teacher who has had stints at two midtown schools and worked as a supply teacher has been arrested on child pornography charges.

Brian Mallette, 50, was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of possession of child pornography and one of accessing child pornography.

Police allege a man was accessing and saving videos and images depicting the sexual abuse of children. Police also allege the man was writing stories of child sexual abuse meant for public consumption.

Mallette is alleged to have used the online handle “coachperv”.

Former students at Northern SS and at Earl Haig Secondary in North York rated Mallette on the website RateMyTeacher.com as a good teacher, though criticized him for not having control of the classroom.
