Tania Pontbriand guilty of sexually assaulting Rosemere student

A former high school teacher has been found guilty of sexually exploiting a student.

Tania Pontbriand was found guilty on Thursday of seducing a 15-year-old boy and continuing a sexual relationship with him for several years.

She was charged in 2008, six years after the relationship began, and the trial faced several delays including having a judge replaced.

Pontbriand was a Phys. Ed. teacher with the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board and was 32 years old when she started abusing her student.

The young man only approached police after the relationship ended, and testified in court that while the abuse was happening he did not realize how damaging it was.

Pontbriand denied that any physical activity ever took place between her and the alleged victim, but evidence presented in court showed that a sleeping bag contained both Pontbriand and the accuser’s sexual fluids.  (more...)
