A former Airdrie high school teacher is going to jail for sexually exploiting one of his students. John Christopher Miller, a former science teacher at George McDougall High School in Airdrie, was sentenced to 28 months Friday in Airdrie Provincial Court.
Miller, 36, pleaded guilty to sexual assault and sexual exploitation of one of his former students. He was arrested and charged in October 2012 after it was alleged that he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student.
The incident came to the attention of police on when they were investigating an unrelated hit-and-run traffic collision. A third party, a female, approached police with the allegations. He was arrested again two months later for breaching conditions after trying to contact the student. Miller is married with children.
