Calgary Catholic teacher guilty of breaching order against contacting teenage boyfriend

The underaged boyfriend of a Calgary Catholic school board teacher was seen fleeing barefoot from a city hotel room window, as police banged on the door, court was told Friday.

Jennifer Mason pleaded guilty to breaching a no-contact order with the boy after she’d been arrested for having an illicit sexual relationship with him.

Crown prosecutor Vicki Faulkner said Mason, 30, was on bail last May 10, charged with sexually exploiting the teen, when the hotel tryst occurred.

Faulkner said Mason, who was handed a 30-day sentence and place on probation for three years, checked into a south Calgary hotel room around 3 p.m. that day.

She told provincial court Judge Catherine Skene that police were concerned Mason would try to contact the teen — whom she was prohibited from seeing as part of her bail conditions.

Around 7:15 police received a call indicating there were loud noises coming from the room Mason had checked into.

An investigator went to the hotel and standing outside the door of her suite, called the former student’s cellphone.

When officers heard a phone ring inside, they did a door-knock on the room, Faulkner said.  (more...)
