Former Thompson teacher facing child-porn charges

A former Thompson schoolteacher accused earlier this year of an inappropriate relationship with a teenaged student is facing more criminal charges.

The RCMP said they’ve laid charges of possessing, producing and distributing child pornography against David John Boyce.

Boyce, 57, was first arrested in late March and charged with sexual exploitation, stemming from an alleged relationship with a 16-year-old female student while he was a teacher at R.D. Parker Collegiate.

Boyce was initially placed on leave by the local school division but he subsequently resigned.

RCMP said Boyce was re-arrested earlier today as a result of an ongoing investigation. He has seen been released on a recognizance with conditions. He is scheduled to make an appearance in Thompson Provincial Court Jan. 18 on the new charges.
