A Saskatoon high school teacher is facing charges following an investigation into the exploitation of children through social media.
Rhett Lundgren, 39, charged with two counts of arranging to commit a sexual offence against a child and one count of attempting to access child pornography, made his first appearance at Saskatoon Provincial Court Friday.
Lundgren works as a fulltime work education teacher at Walter Murray Collegiate and, according to the Saskatchewan Professional Teachers Regulatory Board’s public registry, holds an active, permanent teaching certificate. He's been with Saskatoon Public Schools since 2010, according to spokesperson Veronica Baker.
She told CTV News Lundgren has been “assigned to home with pay” and that the school division has launched its own investigation. Changes to his status as a teacher may occur depending on the outcome of the investigation and court proceedings. (more...)
