Tweed Teacher Pleads Guilty to Sex Crimes

A former elementary school french teacher from Tweed has pleaded guilty to seven sex related charges involving minors.

Jaclyn McLaren originally faced 42 charges after two former students came forward with allegations that they had sexual interactions with her.

Another six victims later came forward later with allegations of a sexual nature, though two had never been her students.

On Tuesday, McLaren pleaded guilty in a Belleville courtroom to two counts of sexual exploitation, two counts of luring, possession of child pornography and making explicit material available to people under 18 and people under 16.

She will undergo a psychological assessment and return to court for sentencing on May 19.
