Bail decision for Moncton teacher facing sex charges reserved
Kenneth Gunn, of Harrison Trimble High, will return to court on Wednesday
A Moncton teacher who is facing sex-related charges involving two girls will find out on Wednesday if he will be released from custody.
Kenneth Gunn, 39, of Riverview, appeared in Moncton provincial court for a bail hearing on Monday.
Gunn, a tutor and teacher at Harrison Trimble High School in Moncton, is charged with possession of child pornography, sexual exploitation and sexual assault.
There is a publication ban on the evidence presented during the bail hearing.
But the charges relate to two girls under the age of 18 and are alleged to have occurred while Gunn was in a position of trust.
"We received complaints of inappropriate behaviour which led to charges," said Codiac RCMP Const. Damien Thériault.
As RCMP conducted their investigation, they were made aware of a second alleged victim, he said, declining to say whether the alleged victims were students at Harrison Trimble.
The investigation is ongoing, said Thériault. Police are asking anyone with information related to the case to contact them.
School district officials declined to comment on the charges against Gunn.
Gunn has been in custody since he was arrested on Nov. 14.
RCMP said the offences allegedly happened between Sept. 1, 2011 and Nov. 7, 2013.
