Sexual assault charges laid against Ladner teacher

43-year-old man also involved in alleged incident in May

Delta Secondary School teacher Robin Wait has been charged with sexual assault stemming from an alleged incident on Nov. 4.

On that day, Delta Police responded to the high school in relation to a report of an alleged sexual assault. Upon arrival, a young girl who was at the school told investigators she had been sexually assaulted by an unknown adult near the school gym.

The Delta Police Department’s Sexual Offence Unit conducted an investigation into the allegations, which has resulted in formal charges being laid against the 43-year-old teacher.

According to a Delta Police press release, Wait has been charged with two counts of sexual interference of a person under 16, and two counts of sexual assault stemming from the Nov. 4 incident, and a previous alleged incident in May 2011.

He has been released on a Bail Recognizance.

Under the conditions of his release, Wait may not contact the victims or witnesses directly or indirectly, and may not seek, obtain or continue any employment or volunteer work that involves being in a position of trust or authority toward persons under the age of 16.

Delta Police say they continue to work with the Delta Board of Education throughout the investigation.

Anyone with information about this case, or any other similar incident, is asked to call Delta Police at 604-946-4411.
