MEADOW LAKE, Sask. - A former dormitory supervisor at a Saskatchewan residential school has been ordered to stand trial on 17 charges of indecent assault.

Seventy-year-old Paul Leroux was charged with indecent assault after complaints were filed by former students at the Beauval Indian Residential School.

The preliminary hearing wrapped up Thursday in Meadow Lake.

The complainants were between the ages of three and 18 when the alleged incidents occurred between 1960 and 1967.

A date and location for the trial has not been finalized.
