A North Vancouver high school teacher has been arrested and charged with sexual exploitation.
That after allegedly assaulting a female student.
Corporal Richard de Jong with North Vancouver RCMP says the assaults allegedly spanned a length of two years.
“The North Vancouver RCMP is alleging that from October 2012 to December 2014 a 39 year-old male teacher sexually assaulted a student.”
Chad Jeremy Smith of Langley was arrested yesterday and released from custody.
In a statement, the North Vancouver School District confirms Smith worked as a teacher at Argyle Secondary since 2005, and has been placed on suspension without pay following his arrest.
They add they’re cooperating with RCMP’s investigation.
Smith is next set to appear in court on September 9th.
