Former teacher’s sentencing postponed as judge weighs options

SASKATOON – A former teacher convicted in March of luring a former student for sex has been allowed to walk free, for now.

Sentencing was scheduled on Monday for Jayson Kennard but the trial judge reserved his decision until later this month.

The 40-year-old was arrested in September 2013 after sending explicit messages to a 16-year old former student propositioning the teen for sex over the internet more than once.

Kennard taught the boy at Dundonald School when he was in Grade 6. Kennard then proceeded to contact him through a private Facebook message when the teen was in Grade 9.

The messages were reported to police in August 2013 after the victim’s mother discovered them on her son’s Facebook page.

During a police investigation, Kennard initiated further sexual conversations unknowingly with a member of the force who was posing as the victim. He was arrested shortly thereafter.  (more...)
