|Thorburn is in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada|
A former teacher at a Pictou County school will go to trial Oct. 19 on multiple charges of sex abuse of children.
Carolyn Amy Hood, of Stellarton, was charged with six offences in connection with an 11-week investigation by Pictou County RCMP.
Police received a complaint from Thorburn Consolidated School, a Grade Primary to Grade 9 school in Pictou County in the fall of 2013. Hood taught Grade 6 at the school.
Hood faces one charge of sexual assault, one of sexual interference, two counts of luring minors over the internet for a sexual purpose and two of sexual exploitation of a young person.
Neither Crown attorney Bill Gorman nor Hood's lawyer Joel Pink would discuss the ages of the victims.
Hood was not present at Tuesday's court proceeding.
The offences are alleged to have occurred between June and September 2013.
