Details of the allegations against Graham, 49, are protected by a court-ordered ban on publication of evidence at his bail hearing.

Graham, who has no previous criminal history, is a longtime teacher at NorKam secondary. The complainant is also a teacher at a city high school.

Graham had been in custody since his arrest on Sept. 28. He appeared briefly in Kamloops provincial court on Monday for a bail hearing. Wearing a red prison-issued T-shirt, he was led into the courtroom by sheriffs and watched the hearing from the prisoner’s box.

Graham was released on bail on a number of strict conditions, including orders barring him from drinking and possessing weapons. He is also prohibited from having any contact with the complainant.

School District No. 73 spokeswoman Diana Skoglund said administrators are following the court process, but she would not comment on Graham’s status as an employee.

“We are aware of the incident,” she said.

Graham is slated to return to court on Oct. 31.
