Sex-assault centres demand Crown appeal the voyeurism acquittal of London teacher who filmed teens

An umbrella group of Ontario sexual-assault centres is encouraging the Crown to appeal the acquittal of a London high-school teacher who secretly took videos of female students with a pen camera.

“Certainly, we’re watching it and certainly we’re very concerned with the message it sends,” said Lenore Lukasik-Foss, president of the Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres, about the acquittal of Ryan Jarvis of voyeurism last week.
