Levack man accused of sexually assaulting child in care of CAS

A 62-year-old Levack man has been accused of sexually assaulting a child in the care of the Children’s Aid Society.

Douglas Klasges was charged in January with sexual exploitation, sexual assault and sexual interference, but police and the Sudbury and District Children’s Aid Society just announced the arrest on Wednesday.

They waited so long to release the information to give the organization a chance to contact children they know may have come in contact with Klasges, said Colette Prevost, executive director of the Sudbury District CAS.

The announcement Wednesday was an appeal to the broader community for any other children who may have had contact with him to come forward to police or the CAS.

“Douglas Klasges is known to have had contact with other children within the community. The police and the CAS have concerns that other children may also have been victimized by Klasges,” states a press release from Greater Sudbury Police.

Prevost would not say if Klasges was a foster parent or how he was involved in the organization. All she would say is he was not a staff member.
