The Winnipeg woman had worked as a phys. ed. teacher at the city’s Collège Béliveau. The girl was a student at the school at the time of the alleged offences.

According to cops, the teen girl was allegedly groomed by Sherrett. That gambit allegedly led to ” inappropriate and physical and sexual contact” on school field trips. Investigators say that the sex crimes continued after the teen left the school.
