A former teacher in Mission has been charged with sex offences in an investigation dating back to 2007.
Donald Alan Sweet has now formally been charged with a total of seven charges, four counts of sexual interference, two counts of sexual assault and one count of assault.
RCMP are also seeking information and witnesses in a historical sexual assault investigation dating back to 2007.
In February 2020, two former female students reported allegations of assault and sexual assault against, Donald Alan Sweet, a former teacher at the Mission School District.
While one woman alleged she had been assaulted, the other reported having been sexually assaulted by Sweet, both while they were students at the MSD.
The offences are alleged to have occurred between 2007 and 2008 in the MSD and a Conference Center near Chilliwack.
The Mission RCMP victim services unit is engaged and continues to support the women, as the investigation has unfolded.
The Mission Serious Crime Unit assumed conduct of the investigation from the early stages and has completed its investigation for consideration of appropriate charges by the BC Prosecution Service.
He is expected to appear next on March 15, in the Abbotsford Provincial Court.
“We are releasing a photo of Mr. Sweet in order to further our investigation and identify anyone who may have more information about these, or other potential offences,” said Cpl. Jason Raaflaub of the Mission RCMP.
