A Mississauga elementary school teacher is facing a sexual exploitation charge dating back to an alleged incident from 2009.

Peel Regional Police say investigators received notice that in June of that year, a teacher’s assistant from a Toronto area high school allegedly sexually exploited a 16-year-old teenager within Peel.

On Wednesday, they arrested 39-year-old Jeffrey Gallo of Mississauga and charged him with sexual exploitation.

Gallo currently works as an elementary school teacher for the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board.

He’s slated to appear in court on July 5.

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators.
