VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — A retired private school teacher in Vancouver accused of trying to buy sex from a teenager won’t be getting any jail time.

Nikolaos Dais has received a six-month conditional sentence Wednesday after pleading guilty to a lesser offence involving communication for the purpose of obtaining sexual services.

His punishment is based on a joint submission from his lawyer and Crown counsel.

Dais is one of the 47 men arrested during a Vancouver Police sting targeting people willing to buy sex from teenagers in 2018, which involved officers posing online as teenage girls.

Investigators posted fake profiles online to see if people were willing to pay for sex with a minor. Prices, a location and sex acts were agreed upon and those who followed-through and showed up at a hotel room were met and arrested.

At least seven of the men were charged.

Dais taught math for several years at Little Flower Academy, an all-girl Catholic school in the Shaughnessy neighbourhood.

A three-day trial slated to start in June was postponed because of the pandemic.
