Bishop McNally High School teacher charged with sexual offences against student

Allegations of inappropriate sexual contact with a student have led to the arrest of a teacher at a northeast high school.

The Calgary police child-abuse unit announced that a 45-year-old Bishop McNally High School teacher is facing charges in connection with sexual offences dating back more than a decade.

Police began investigating in January 2017 after a former student at the high school reported she had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a teacher between 2007 and 2009.

The alleged incidents occurred at several residences in Calgary and the school, police said.

“Despite the age of consent in 2007 being 14, the suspect was in a position of trust and authority over the victim for the duration of alleged offences,” police said in a news release.

Edwin Cay Arias, 45, of Calgary, was charged early Wednesday morning with sexual contact with a youth by a person in authority and sexual assault.  (more..)
