Iqaluit teacher pleads not guilty to sex offences
Teacher cannot be named because of a publication ban
An Iqaluit teacher charged with sex-related offences has pleaded not guilty.
His lawyer Laura Stevens entered the plea Monday morning in the Nunavut Court of Justice in Iqaluit.
The man was charged March 27 with three counts of sexual interference. He cannot be named because of a publication ban
Crown and defence lawyers agreed today to change some of the teacher's bail conditions. He is now allowed to leave the territory but must inform the RCMP before leaving, and when he returns. He must also have a return ticket.
He cannot attend Aqsarniit Middle School between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily, but he can go to Taekwondo practice at the school in the evening.
His next court appearance will be June 3 to set a trial date.
CBC News has filed a notice of motion to contest the publication ban on the name of the accused. It will be heard in court on Friday.
