This one will be registered too

Another teacher is before the courts on sex charges.

They will of course be registered, which Chris Hipkins tells us is to protect the children, and why charter schools are so evil because they won’t protect children because they don’t have to have registered teachers.

A Canterbury school teacher has appeared in court today facing child sex charges dating back to the 1990s.

The 54-year-old man was granted interim name suppression at Christchurch District Court this morning.

He faces 15 charges, including six of indecent assault and nine of sexual violation on one boy under the age of 16 between January 1990 and April 1995.

Police allege the offending happened at two South Island towns – not where he now lives.  

Defence counsel Grant Tyrrell asked for the man, whose occupation is listed as teacher, to be remanded without plea on all charges until June 15.

Police prosecutor Glenn Pascoe asked for interim name suppression as there were “other interested parties” and prosecution needed to “get their ducks in a row”.

Judge Tom Gilbert granted interim name suppression but warned police they must have proper grounds for suppression filed before the next court appearance.

The man was remanded on bail, with conditions that he must live at a specified address, surrender his passport to police, not to leave the country or associate with the complainant, and to report to a police station once a week.

Registration seems to have worked really well in protecting kids from this guy.

    Pity they don’t call Hipkins and union bosses to give evidence at each trial.

    ….has there been any criminal charges laid against a teacher (registered or un-registered) from a Charter School; from my limited knowledge I do not recall any such instance to date. In that case opponents need to ST%U until such a point where they can actually point to fact and not just crystal ball gazing.

      It would be headlines all over the Media Party for days on end covering every angle if it was a teacher from a Charter school
      In this case he must be registered, nothing to see here move along
