Coach in custody over holidays

The Seattle coach and substitute teacher arrested and charged with voyeurism and other offences on a school-sponsored cross-country ski team trip to Vernon will spend Christmas in custody.

According to a statement released by The Bush School in Seattle, Jason C. Paur, 43, was arrested by Vernon RCMP Dec. 10 after the discovery of a video camera allegedly belonging to him was found by students in a room occupied by girls at Silver Star Mountain Resort.

Paur appeared in Vernon Provincial Court by video Wednesday, but his matter was put over until Jan. 8.

He was remanded in custody.

Paur was charged with three counts of voyeurism related to observing or recording individuals in a place where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy and to be nude. He also was charged with possessing child pornography, accessing child pornography and three counts of breaking and entering with intent to commit an indictable offence.

The allegations against Paur have not been proven in court.
