Conduct Review Sub-Committee Agreements

In the former BC College of Teachers model, where a citation had been issued and the parties had reached an agreement on all issues, the matter could be referred to the Conduct Review Sub-Committee. This Sub-Committee, comprised of three Council members, one of whom was a layperson, had the authority to review agreed statements of fact and disposition and either approve or reject them.

He pled guilty to the charge of sexual exploitation on April 2007, and was sentenced to 14 days in jail and 18 months of probation with conditions. Additionally, Mr. Belec was ordered to be registered on the Sex Offender Information Registry. On October 5, 2009, the Conduct Review Sub-Committee accepted the Statement of Agreed Facts and Disposition and Mr. Belec’s acknowledgment that his conduct constituted conduct unbecoming a member of the College.
