      A music instructor who was arrested due to alleged sexual offences involving minors has been charged.

      Allegations against 22-year-old Lamar Victor Alviar of Vancouver were reported to have taken place in Coquitlam.

      Alviar runs L.A. Music Studio, a music business in North Vancouver. The allegations involved both students and non-students.

      After Coquitlam RCMP released his name and photo on August 22 in search of other victims or witnesses, several witnesses contacted police.

      Alviar has been charged with one count each of possessing child pornography and communicating with a minor to facilitate a sexual offence. He has also been charged with three counts of sexual touching of a minor and three counts of sexual assault.

      He is scheduled to appear in court today (October 7) in Port Coquitlam. He had no significant police history before these charges.
