BRANTFORD – A Grand Erie School Board vice-principal appeared in Brantford court last Thursday for a bail hearing after he was arrested following the discovery of a small digital camera hidden in the ceiling tiles of the staff washroom at James Hillier Public School on Queensway Drive in Brantford.

Thirty-three-year-old Brent Lawrence Hachborn, vice-principal at St. George-German Public School and Burford District Elementary School, is facing one charge of adult voyeurism based on an image found on the camera by police after school maintenance personnel found the camera.

Hachborn’s home computer and other electronic devices have also been seized and police believe more images and more charges are likely to follow.

Superintendent of education, Liana Thompson, although upset at the incident went on record assuring parents that as of now, there have been no children involved and said the board believes this was an isolated incident.

“This is an extremely serious charge and we are working with police,” said Thompson. “It is a very distressing situation. Our biggest priority is to support anyone who comes forward with information.”

Hachborn will not be allowed to teach or be inside the school while the investigation continues.

Shawn McKillop, the board’s manager of communications and community relations, said information about the incident is being prepared for parents and has been sent home with students.

A publication ban issued by the court prohibits publication of any evidence revealed at the hearing.
