BATTLEFORD, Sask. - The prosecution has wrapped up its case in the trial for a former dormitory supervisor at a residential school in Saskatchewan.

The final witness testified Wednesday about being molested by Paul Leroux while he attended the Beauval Indian Residential School as a child in the 1960s.

He also testified that Leroux molested him after he left the school.

Leroux, who is 72, has pleaded not guilty to indecent assault involving about a dozen former students at the school for seven years during the 1960s.

Leroux, who is representing himself, asked the judge to have the case dismissed because he felt the witness lacked credibility, but the judge denied the request.

Leroux is expected to testify Thursday.

The trial is being heard by judge alone in Court of Queen's Bench in the town of Battleford, Sask.
