A 40-year-old Pickering teacher faces criminal charges after she allegedly harassed a former male student.

Police say the woman repeatedly made contact with the former student, who is under the age of 18, and was even found outside of the student’s home, watching the residence from a parked car on the afternoon of April 4.

Jennifer Kurka, of Scarborough, is charged with criminal harassment and has been released from custody with imposed conditions.

Police ask anyone with information about the incident to contact Cst. Dave Hookway of West Division at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2582.
