Aleksandr Plehanov, a former School District 43 substitute teacher, is facing sex charges in Surrey, The Tri-City News has learned.

According to court documents, Plehanov, a Burnaby resident, is facing one count of touching for a sexual purpose a person under the age of 16 and another count of sexual assault related to a March 2013 arrest in Surrey. He is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing on the matter next month in B.C. Provincial Court in Surrey.

The Tri-City News has also learned that Plehanov’s teaching certificate, which was initially suspended in 2010, was cancelled last month and he has been ruled ineligible to practise for three years. A public hearing would have to be held before his licence could be reinstated, should he apply.

Plehanov’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for Surrey Provincial Court on July 30 at 9:30 a.m.
