Former counselor receives conditional sentence for sexual assault
THUNDER BAY — A former Lakehead Regional Family Centre counselor accused of sexual assault received a two-year conditional sentence.
Tarja Trochimchuk was sentenced last week on one count each of sexual assault and assault.
Trochimchuk will spend the sentence under house arrest among other court-ordered conditions.
Trochimchuk is also subject to three years of probation and is required to comply with the Sexual Offender Information Registration Act.
The 61-year-old was arrested last October in connection with a historical sexual assault case.
The alleged incidents took place between 1992 and 1999 and involved a female client of Trochimchuk who was 15-years-old at the time the assaults began.
The arrest came at the end of a four-month investigation.
Trochimchuk resigned from her position in 2002.
Much of the details of this case are protected by court-ordered publication bans.
