More than a year after he was released on appeal, there’s still no hearing date set for a convicted sex offender living in Sunderland.
Thomas Grieve – a former teacher in Whitby – was convicted in September 2019 of 16 counts of sexual assault and sexual interference following accusations from former students. He was sentenced to 720 days in jail on Jan. 7, 2020.
Grieve was released from custody a day later (Jan. 8) pending an appeal of that conviction, according to court officials in Oshawa.
No date for the appeal hearing has been set.
According to neighbours, Grieve moved into a home on Antioch Court with his partner in late April or early May.
While several conditions were imposed upon his release, none specifically dealt with living in close proximity to a school or park.
