The former vice-chair of the London Police Services Board has been committed to stand trial on one count of sexual exploitation and one count of sexual assault.

The charges against Michael Deeb, a Thames Valley District School Board principal currently on leave, stem from allegations involving a former student in 2000-2001.

The name of the victim cannot be released due to the nature of the charges and a publication has been put in place on the proceedings of the preliminary hearing.

Deeb resigned from the police board last year. Prior to taking a leave of absence he was also the principal at H.B. Beal Secondary School.

A trial date for Deeb will be selected in July.

He is expected to plead not guilty to the allegations.
