McKay was arrested yesterday and is now charged with five counts of sexual assault, four counts of sexual exploitation, four counts of luring and one count of sexual interference.
The Winnipeg Police Service announced the charges Wednesday, stating five now-adult victims who played high school football contacted the Sex Crimes Unit earlier this month.
