Ex-teacher, B.C. ski safety expert sentenced to house arrest for sex assaults against teen boy in 1990s

A well-known expert on ski injury prevention who was convicted of sexually assaulting a boy nearly 20 years ago has been sentenced to house arrest.

In November a B.C. Supreme Court jury found Robert Cadman, 54, guilty of two counts of sexually assaulting the teenage boy, who can be identified only by the initials B.R.S. because of a publication ban.

The jury heard evidence relating to eight to nine incidents in which Cadman sexually assaulted B.R.S. in Vancouver, Whistler and Calgary, between October 1993 and December 1997.

But in imposing sentence on Cadman, Justice Patrice Arbour accepted that he had committed only two sexual assaults. One of the incidents occurred when B.R.S. and a friend identified as N.P. were staying overnight at a residence at the University of B.C., where Cadman was a graduate student.

B.R.S. had first met Cadman through N.P.'s family. The other sexual assault occurred at Cadman's cabin in Whistler, where the accused was employed by Whistler Mountain as a ski patroller.  (more...)
