Why bail, no jail?

Re: “Sexual assault charges laid against Ladner teacher.”

It is ridiculous that an offender that has allegedly committed multiple offences to those under the age of 16 should be released under such mediocre terms.

I myself am a 16-year-old girl and I find it incredibly alarming that the police would warrant a bail following these concerning incidences – a high school teacher, no less.

More extensive measures should be conducted surrounding the cases of high school staff, and allowing immediate release following an arrest is certainly not a substantial method.
