Ryan Patrick Nolan, former teacher, sentenced for sex crimes

A former teacher with the Halifax Regional School Board was sentenced Friday for sex offences involving two boys he tutored who were both under 16.

Ryan Patrick Nolan, 33, was sentenced to nine months of house arrest, followed by three months of curfew and then a year of probation for sexual assault and exposing himself.

The sentence was a joint recommendation of the Crown and the defence.

Nolan must also submit a DNA sample and will be added to the National Sex Offender Registry for life. He's also prohibited from working or volunteering in a position of trust with anyone under 16 for the next 10 years.

Nolan previously pleaded guilty to the charges. Both cases involve young boys under 16 who Nolan tutored at his apartment after school hours while he worked as a substitute teacher between 2008 and 2011.

He also coached the boys hockey team at Bedford Junior High School and did some coaching for the Bedford and District Minor Hockey Association.

The father of one of the victims called the sentence a joke.  (more...)
