SUMMERSIDE — The one-time principal at Kensington Intermediate Senior High School has pleaded guilty to luring an underage student via text message.
Terry Foster, 41, entered the guilty plea during an appearance Wednesday morning in Summerside provincial court.
Over the span of two days in December, Foster, who, at the time, was principal at the Kensington school, and a 17-year-old female student were texting back and forth, with Foster calling the girl “tempting”, “hot”, “attractive” and suggesting they rendezvous while his wife and child were away and meet up in the school’s book room the following Monday.
Crown attorney John Diamond and Foster’s counsel, Halifax-based attorney Joel Pink, presented a joint recommendation of a 90-day intermittent sentence followed by 24 months of probation.
Judge Jeff Lantz, after hearing submissions, said he would need time to render his sentencing decision.
Sentencing will take place on June 5 at 11 a.m.
Foster left the courthouse via the side door with his head covered, avoiding media.
