A former West Kelowna teacher who went to prison for sexually exploiting a student at his school has been released from jail with a few conditions.

Following a review, the Parole Board of Canada made the decision to impose special conditions on Bradley Furman’s statutory release. Furman is serving two years, two months, and 19 days for Sexual Exploitation, obstructing justice and failing to comply with bail conditions.

The board said Furman, 32, must have no contact with the victim or victim’s family, must report all sexual and non-sexual relationships with women, must not own or possess a computer or device with access to the internet without approval from a board supervisor, must have no contact with female youths under the age of 18 unless accompanied by an adult and must follow a treatment plan, according to a parole board decision, July 12.

The parole board said it considered Furman’s performance while in jail was satisfactory and he also presents a low risk for sexual reoffending. He is also employed full time and has earned trust to be able to use a cellphone.

In Furman’s latest correctional plan update, risk factors requiring improvement are in the areas of personal/emotional orientation and attitude, according to the board.

"You were reassessed as requiring low needs (from moderate at intake) in the areas of marital/family, education/employment, and associates. No immediate need is required for substance abuse, and community functioning is considered an asset to your community adjustment,” according to the parole decision.

Furman was released on day parole March 10 and has been generally compliant with his conditions. He has also completed a Community Sex Offender Maintenance Program and has received a positive program completion report.
