MISSION (NEWS 1130) — A Mission teacher has had his educational license suspended for two weeks after he went into a substitute teacher’s home without permission.

The suspension comes after Michael Alexander plead guilty to criminal charges of mischief for entering that home illegally in April and May of 2016. He was sentenced to two years probation and was told to pay $100 to the victim.

Alexander was also fired by the Mission School District in February 2018 after the district completed their own investigation on those incidents.

According to a decision by theĀ BC Commissioner for Teacher Regulation, Alexander went to the substitute teacher’s home in the middle of the school day during his preparation period, and used a spare key to unlock the gate to the house and went inside the home.

A neighbour saw him going into the home and contacted police.
