West Kelowna teacher charged with sexual exploitation awaiting sentence

September 24, 2019 - 10:45 AM

KELOWNA - A former West Kelowna high school teacher who pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a young person wasn’t sentenced as planned Monday, Sept. 24, though it’s not far in the offing.

Bradley Furman breached the condition of his release following pleading guilty to the charges of exploitation, attempting to pervert justice and three counts of breaching bail conditions and that's pushed his sentencing hearing back. 

A revised psychological assessment is expected to be completed Oct. 21 an then two days will be scheduled soon after for sentencing.

Furman was originally charged with sexual assault, two counts of sexual exploitation of a young person, luring a child and attempting to pervert justice, stemming from incidents last summer. As part of a plea deal, the Crown had agreed to drop several of the charges in exchange for his guilty pleas on the sexual exploitation, attempting to pervert justice and three breach charges.

In the months that followed, Furman was released from custody on a $10,000 surety and he faced strict bail conditions, including a ban on going near any school in the Central Okanagan and he’s not allowed to possess a cellphone or any other device that can access the internet.
