N.S. Teacher Amy Hood found guilty

PICTOU – Carolyn Amy Hood has been found guilty of four charges related to offences involving minors.

Hood, 39, has admitted to four of the six charges that include two counts of luring, one count of sexual interference and one count of sexual exploitation of a young person. The charges were laid in relation to offences from Feb.1 to Sept. 30, 2013. One charge has been amended.

She was teaching Grade 6 at Thorburn Consolidated at the time when it was a primary to Grade 9 school. The defence is arguing Hood was not criminally responsible at the time because of a mental disorder.

An eight-day trial was held in October 2015. There is a publication ban that protects the identities of the victims.  (more...)
