First court appearance for teacher facing sex charges

TIMMINS - A female elementary school teacher accused of sexual misconduct involving a minor had her first scheduled appearance in Timmins provincial court Tuesday.

Veronique Vallee-Guindon, 27, did not actually show up in court for what turned out to be a very brief proceeding.

She was represented by the court's duty counsellor, Calvin Ferrier, who requested an adjournment on behalf of Vallee-Guindon’s lawyer.

Passing along information that had been provided to him, Ferrier explained that the defence had recently received the disclosure or case file from the prosecution and required a period of time to review its contents.

The matter was adjourned to Jan. 20.

Vallee-Guindon is charged with sexual assault, sexual interference, sexual exploitation, sexual invitation and obstructing police.  (more...)
