Brantford teacher faces sex charges

A male teacher at Brantford Collegiate Institute is facing sex-related charges after a student reported an assault, and Brantford police say they believe there may be more complainants.

The teacher, who police said lives in Brantford, is charged with sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching.

The Expositor is not naming the accused at this time. Publication bans imposed at a Friday morning bail hearing prohibit publication of information that would identify the complainant as well as evidence taken and information given at the hearing.

The teacher has been "assigned to home" and is now not currently teaching or working with any students, said Dave Abbey, superintendent of education with the Grand Erie District School Board.

"We'll be putting somebody in to take over his classes," Abbey said.

Abbey declined to comment on the status of the teacher's pay, nor would he comment on how long the teacher had been employed at BCI or by the Grand Erie board.

The teacher was arrested Thursday following a police investigation into a student's report of sexual assault, police said.  (more...)
