Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) members from the new Provincial Human Trafficking Intelligence-led Joint Forces Investigations, with assistance from the Orillia Crime Unit and detachment members, arrested and charged a multi-jurisdictional offender.
In May 2020, the investigation began with allegations made by a victim who did not get paid for their services. During the investigation, numerous multi-jurisdictional incidences dating back to 2010 were identified and additional victims came forward with similar complaints.
As a result of the investigation, 58-year-old Tony ORR, of Huntsville, has been charged with:
- Sexual assault, Section 271 CCC (X3);
- Communicate with anyone for the purpose of obtaining sexual services, Section 286.1(1) CCC (X1); and,
- Fraud under $5,000.00, Section 380(1)(b) CCC (X2)
The accused is scheduled to appear in court on January 26, 2021. Previous charges are before the court.
“Being a victim of any crime can be devastating. In these instances, the offender purposely chose highly vulnerable, marginalized individuals to victimize. Other victims may be out there and we ask that they contact the police if they have information,” stated Detective Sergeant Andrew Taylor, Anti-Human Trafficking Unit in a release issued by the OPP, today December 30, 2020.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation should contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122
