A former teacher and convicted sex offender is scheduled to plead guilty on new charges of sexual interference with a minor and breaching his probation.
Brett Anthony Nelson is set to appear next in court Feb. 25. On Tuesday he elected to appear before a B.C. Supreme Court justice to fix a date for a guilty plea, said Crown lawyer Alex Janse.
He is charged with sex interference of a minor, breach of probation and failing to comply with a court order.
A year ago Nelson was sentenced to nine months in jail after luring young girls over the Internet for sexual purposes. He acted like a predator when he "sexted" two teenage girls, said Judge Hermann Rohrmoser in handing down in sentence.
Nelson was also given three years of probation at the time, with terms prohibiting him from having contact with young people or from being in places where they might be found.
He was ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years, and told to supply a blood sample so his DNA can be included in Canada's registry of serious offenders.
He was convicted of sexual exploitation in 2004 by a B.C. Supreme Court judge for engaging in a romantic, sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl who had been a student of his earlier in the year.
