The Crown and defence both say a 70-year-old former Moosomin Day School teacher changed his ways while in prison.

This is part of the reason he received the sentence he did for assaulting girls at the Moosomin Day School in the 1960s.

On Monday, Morris David Hryniuk was sentenced to a 90-day intermittent sentence in the Prince Albert Correctional Centre.

He will serve this sentence on weekends.

In addition, Hryniuk received a conditional sentence order confining him to his home and/or property for two years less a day.

He must also complete 100 hours of community service by February 28, 2016.

The Crown and defence both said after Hryniuk was sentenced for similar crimes in B.C. in the 1980s, he became a model prisoner.

He took courses to combat sexual deviance and addictions.

After Hryniuk was released, he never re-offended.

The court received victim impact statements on how the former teacher’s actions ruined the lives of several generations.

A retired United States coast guard officer is traveling to La Ronge to help in the search for a man who went missing a dozen years ago.

In July 2002, 72-year-old Percy McKenzie was last seen near Powell Island on Lac La Ronge and he hasn’t been seen since.

At the time of his disappearance, the lake had been rough.

Craig Thorngren of Seattle, Washington has many years of experience working with underwater camera and sonar equipment and will be assisting searchers from Grandmother’s Bay.

Volunteer coordinator Leon Charles says a number of people will be involved in the effort.

“We have ten people from Grandmother's Bay to go out and help with the search, it takes three people to run the machine and do the other stuff, the more guys were have the more eyes because there is two screens to look at for the sonar and the camera,” he says.

Charles says once the search for the missing man at Reindeer Lake has concluded, the search for Percy McKenzie can begin.

The operation on Lac La Ronge is expected to last five days.
