Correction: Dawson Creek teacher convicted for sexual interference

Correction:

The BC Prosecution Service says former Dawson Creek teacher Michael Dodd was tried in 2017 and convicted of sexual interference. Dodd was sentenced to two years in jail with two years probation, and issued a 10-year firearms ban. Incorrect information was reported Tuesday that the charges had been dropped.

The BC Prosecution Service acknowledges it made an error in responding to our inquiry about the case, and says it provided information on another case from Nanaimo that was stayed in March of this year involving an accused with a similar name.

We apologize for the error.
