Music teacher facing charges after allegations of sex offences

Coquitlam, BC – A man who operates a North Vancouver music business called ‘LA Music Studio’ has been charged after an investigation into alleged sexual offences involving minors.

The original allegations against Lamar Victor Alviar, a 22-year-old Vancouver man, were reported to have happened in Coquitlam. The circumstances of the case led to Coquitlam RCMP taking the unusual step of publishing Alviar’s name and photo.

As a result of that step, additional witnesses have come forward to police. Alviar has now been charged with the following Criminal Code offences:

Section 163.1(4); one count of possession of child pornography,

Section 172.1(1); one count of communicating with a minor to facilitate a sexual offence,

Section 151; three counts of sexual touching of a minor,

Section 271; three counts of sexual assault.
