A teacher went too far when he bought a student a one-day ticket to Croatia so the boy could join him and his family on vacation, the alleged victim's mother told a Sudbury court Monday.

The mother testified the family was getting concerned about the Damir Bulic attention paid to their son, including gifts of expensive clothing, an overnight trip to Canada's Wonderland, cash and a laptop computer, the mother said.

The family drew the line when the teacher paid for a trip in July 2011 to Croatia, the mother said.

"I told (my son) he would not be going to Croatia," the mother testified on the first day of the trial of Bulic, who is facing five sex-related charges involving the boy dating back almost seven years.

"I could not believe (Bulic) went out and bought the ticket. He didn't think that I would like it, but he would provide me with a proper structure if I insisted."

Bulic, 46, who is not in custody, is facing four counts of performing an indecent act and one count of invite sexual touching, all allegedly involving the same male teen minor from Sept. 1, 2010, to Sept. 30, 2011, in southern Ontario.

The alleged indecent acts include exposing genitals to and masturbation in front of the teen.  (more...)
