Sentencing scheduled for West Kelowna teacher who pleaded guilty to exploitation

Kelowna Law Courts
November 28, 2019 - 2:00 PM

A former West Kelowna teacher who pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a young person will be in court for sentencing from Dec. 16 to 17.

Bradley Michael Furman, who is now being held at the Okanagan Correctional Centre in Oliver, pleaded guilty months earlier to the charges of exploitation, attempting to pervert justice and three counts of breaching bail conditions.

Sexual exploitation is an offence from a person who is in a position of trust or authority towards a young person. A young person, in the eyes of the courts, is someone between the ages of 12 and 17.

Furman was initially charged with child luring, sexual exploitation, sexual assault and an attempt to obstruct justice for incidents alleged to have occurred between March 16 and May 1, 2018. 

Furman was employed at Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary until May 2018.
