Ajax teacher charged with luring after undercover sting

A teacher from Ajax is facing charges after allegedly setting up a meeting online with who he thought was a 14-year-old girl for sex.

But it was an undercover Durham Regional Police officer behind the keyboard.

Sgt. Bill Calder tells NEWSTALK 1010 their forced launched an investigation into Raymond Hubbard late in 2015 based on a tip from the United States. The alert was based on something posted on Facebook.

Calder would not get into specifics, but says Durham police made contact with Hubbard in an undercover operation.

"He was trying to make arrangements to meet a 14-year-old. He knew the age of the person involved and he knew it was for a sexual purpose."

Raymond Hubbard is charged with child luring to facilitate sexual interference, child luring to facilitate invitation to sexual touching, and child luring to make child pornography.

The 52-year-old taught at Ajax's Lincoln Alexander Public School between 2003 and 2013 and then Terry Fox Public School, also in Ajax.  (more...)
