Teacher offered plea deal

A guilty plea could be on the horizon in the case of a former Mount Boucherie high school teacher charged with child luring and sexual assault.

Bradley Furman is currently on 24-hour house arrest after he was charged with sexual assault, two counts of sexual exploitation of a young person, luring a child and attempting to pervert justice, along with several charges of breaching previous bail conditions.

On Tuesday, Crown prosecutor David Grabavac told Kelowna court he had offered Furman a “resolution proposal,” or a plea deal, rather than go to trial. The details of the proposed deal are unknown.

Last week in court, counsel for Furman told the court he intended to plea guilty, and would request a psychiatric assessment prior to sentencing, but it's unclear what charges he intends to plea to.

Despite what Furman's counsel said last week, Grabavac said Tuesday he didn't know if Furman intends to accept his proposal or if the case would proceed to trial.

The case was adjourned to Thursday, when Furman is expected to make his intentions known.
