Complaints against a former Winnetka gym teacher accused of sexual abuse date back to the 1960s.

William Bricker, 94, is charged with sex crimes involving two boys at a summer camp in Wyoming where he served as a counselor from the 1960s to the 1980s.

Students at Hubbard Woods elementary school in Winnetka have also come forward to say Bricker molested them.

Those complaints dated back to the late 1970s, but now memos have surfaced revealing police and school officials discussed complaints again stricker as far back as 1968.

But there are no records to indicate Winnetka police ever met with Bricker.

Bricker is in hospice care in Northern Michigan and is scheduled to be extradited to Wyoming later this month.
