WINNIPEG — A teacher at Grant Park High School has been charged with sexual exploitation, sexual assault and supplying liquor to a minor.

The 27-year-old Winnipeg woman is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student at the school.

Police say the alleged offences occurred between December 1, 2019 and February 8, 2020.

Const. Rob Carver says in at least one alleged incident the teacher gave alcohol to a group of students.

The woman, who police haven’t named, was released from custody on a release order with the following conditions:

  • No contact or communication with the victim
  • Not to possess or access any device capable of accessing the Internet
  • No direct or indirect contact with anyone under the age of 18
  • Not to seek, obtain or continue employment, or become a volunteer in a capacity that involves being in a position of trust or authority over a person under 18 years

Carver says it’s a possibility the teacher may face more charges.

“If you have a teacher who is interacting with students and, at some point, there is a group of students where alcohol is supplied by the teacher … I would view those other students as victims as well.”

Carver says parents who found out about the allegations notified the school, which contacted police.

The charges haven’t been tested in court.
