After sexual exploitation conviction, Prince Albert teacher McLachlan not fighting sanctions

Teacher Bonnie McLachlan
A Prince Albert teacher convicted of sexually exploiting a 15-year-old student is not fighting to keep her teaching certificate.

At a hearing on Tuesday in Saskatoon to decide Bonnie McLachlan’s professional fate, a lawyer for the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation (STF) said the former teacher knows her credentials are at risk.

“She does not oppose any steps that the minister of (education) may decide to take,” STF lawyer Dennis Fisher said during the hearing in front of an STF ethics committee.

In 2013, a jury convicted McLachlan — now in her mid-50s — of sexually exploiting a 15-year-old student in the 1990s. The man, now in his 30s, came forward to police in 2010 about his sexual relationship with McLachlan during the 1993-94 school year.  (more...)
