BRANDON — A Brandon man, found guilty of domestic abuse in 2014, is now a school teacher and his victim, also a school teacher, has been threatened with having her teaching licence revoked for speaking out against him.
After the attack, which left her with a diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, she feels she was failed by every institution designed to protect her.
Court records show the man was sentenced to a one-year probationary period.
Legislation allows a Victim Impact Statement to be received and considered in the Sentencing of defendants convicted of sexual abuse crimes.
The Brandon School Division also declined comment on man, saying "It has not yet been determined if this is an employment-related matter." BSD does require all employees to have recent criminal-record checks and child-abuse registry checks before being hired. Even if I wasn't a victim, I wouldn't tolerate it." She says many women and girls have reached out privately to thank her for sharing her story. She hopes sharing her story will help contribute to the dialogue surrounding sexual assault and things like the "#Me Too" movement — a viral campaign that sprouted recently after high-powered Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein was outed as a sexual predator — as well as lead to changes within the teachers' union, the school division and the university. And if they see their teacher being told to keep quiet about a problem, then why would they ever speak up?
