Surrey Provincial Court.

Trial set for former Peninsula teacher

A former Semiahmoo Peninsula teacher accused of possessing and accessing child pornography is to go to trial on the charges in January.

A former Semiahmoo Peninsula teacher accused of possessing and accessing child pornography will go to trial on the charges early next year.

According to court records, the case against White Rock senior George Heinz Kraus is scheduled to be heard in Surrey Provincial Court from Jan. 7-10.

The charges against Kraus date back to Jan. 1, 2010 (accessing) and June 27, 2012 (possession).

Trial dates were set following a court appearance June 17.

Staff Sgt. Bev Csikos told Peace Arch News in February that officers with the Integrated Child Exploitation unit executed a search warrant on a White Rock home a year ago today (June 27), following a tip “suggesting (the accused) was in possession of child-pornography material.”

The tip came from another agency and a police investigation in another jurisdiction is ongoing, Csikos said.

Kraus taught at White Rock Elementary for 13 years and was in his second year at Laronde Elementary when he resigned in 2005.
