The Supreme Court of Canada has found a high school teacher in London, Ontario guilty of voyeurism after he secretly recorded female students with a camera pen.
According to CTV, the case had been appealed to Canada’s top court by the Crown.
Ryan Jarvis was charged after he made recordings of conversations he had with female students from 2010 – 2011. As he talked to the students, whose ages ranged from 14 to 18, he recorded them with a camera pen and pointed at their breasts.
A London judge originally found Jarvis not guilty on the belief that his actions were not sexually motivated. The Ontario Court of Appeal disagreed, but upheld the acquittal. The reason being that the teacher’s students had no reasonable expectation of privacy while at school.
Additionally, Jarvis will face a disciplinary hearing from the Ontario College of Teachers for alleged offences which include sexual abuse of students and psychological or emotional abuse.
Jarvis has agreed not to teach until the hearing is complete.
