Sentencing for a convicted child sex offender from Six Nations has been put over to May 26.
On January 23, a Wisconsin court found Hayehe:s Matthew Joseph Myke, 35, guilty of Repeated Sexual Assault of Same Child (At Least 3 Violations of 1st or 2nd Degree Sexual Assault). He has been immediately taken into custody.
Sentencing for Myke was originally slated for March 2020 but was postponed.
The assaults took place in 2013. Myke was taken into custody where he remains awaiting the sentence — which officials say could be as high as 40 years in prison.
Myke was scheduled to appear in an Ontario court on various driving related offences in St. Catharines in March. Myke’s lawyer told the judge that he was unable to attend court and said the the driving charges were “the least of his concerns”.
Myke is originally from Six Nations and was hired by at least one school and one historical site in the community after his 2016 arrest — teaching Haudenosaunee traditions, songs, dance, and ceremonies to children as late as 2019. He was being considered by traditional leaders in the community for a role in political leadership. It is not known if the traditional leaders were aware of the charges he was facing.
