British national Claire TREACY (25), of Midtown, Queensway, employed locally as a school teacher, has today been charged with five counts of “Sexual Activity with a child by a person in a position of trust.”

The charges follow her arrest in November 2020 by detectives from the RGP Safeguarding Team following a report made to police, and come at the end of an extensive investigation into activity she had reportedly engaged in with two separate victims (both of whom are now adults), on diverse dates between 2018 and 2020.

TREACY is due to appear before the Magistrates’ Court tomorrow morning.

 Editor’s note: please note that for the purposes of this offence a child is classified as a person under the age of 18 and the alleged victims in this case are said to have been between 16 and 17 when the offences are alleged to have taken place.
