A former Kamloops teacher and convicted sex offender was arrested again this week, and now faces three new charges.

Brett Anthony Nelson, 52, appeared in court Thursday afternoon on charges of sexual interference of a minor, breach of probation and failure to comply with a probation order.

It was unclear at press time when Nelson would make his next court appearance.

Nelson has a criminal history for a similar offence.

One year ago this week, he 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 teenaged 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.
