His first hearing was put over on Nov. 27. The courtroom was packed with students, most from the University of Toronto, where two of the three incidents happened.

On Tuesday, Opoku appeared but did not address the court.

Court documents obtained by Global News showed that Opoku was convicted of criminal harassment on March 8, 2017 in Hamilton. He was given a suspended sentence, two years of probation.
