Halton board occasional teacher facing sex-related charges

An occasional teacher who instructed at more than one school within the Halton public school board is facing a slew of sex-related charges involving children.

Waterloo Regional Police says that on Feb. 14, as a result of an ongoing investigation by its Cybercrime Branch — Internet Child Exploitation Unit, a search warrant was executed at a Kitchener home, following contact from the National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre regarding allegations that a male was exploiting children over social media platforms.

Waterloo investigators say officers seized digital devices.

Police say there are three alleged victims, ranging in age from 8-12.

Victor Ly, 32, of Kitchener is charged with three counts of luring a child, three counts of possession of child pornography, two counts of making sexually explicit material available to a child and extortion.

Waterloo police say that at the time of his arrest Ly was an occasional teacher with the Halton District School Board.

They say he also has experience teaching in Waterloo Region private schools as well as internationally.  (more...)
