Vancouver ballet teacher charged with sexual exploitation released on bail

A ballet teacher at a prestigious Vancouver dance school who faces three charges of sexual exploitation for allegedly having a relationship with an underage student was released on $10,000 bail Thursday.

Alejandro Vargas Gomez, 49, wearing a red prison shirt and pants, stood quietly in the prisoner’s box during a brief appearance in provincial court in Vancouver.

The hearing included the Crown’s suggested conditions and information about Gomez, who’s from Mexico, but there is a publication ban on details, standard for a bail hearing.

Judge Reg Harris attached a number of conditions to his release, including that Gomez not be around anyone under 18 unless in the company of an adult, post a $10,000 cash deposit, surrender his passport, remain in B.C. and travel only with permission of the courts and to report regularly to a bail supervisor.

He was also ordered not to contact the alleged victim or any of 13 witnesses, who were named in court but whose identities are protected by the publication ban.  (more...)

But there's therapy for that:
