A former supply teacher from Kingsville has been handed 3 1/2 year jail sentence for sexual assault.

The 45-year-old's name is being withheld to protect the identity of the victims.

Defence lawyer Ken Marley tells CTV News the man’s step-daughter came forward saying she'd been sexually touched after her friend told police the same thing happened to her during a sleep-over nearly two years ago.

Both girls were 15 years old at the time.

The man is no longer teaching and the daughter and mother have since left the area.
