TABER, AB – A Taber Police investigation six years in the making has finally reached its conclusion.

In May 2015, a woman reported to police that while she was 15-years old – between Apr. 2007 and Nov. 2008 – she was involved in a sexual relationship with the then-31-year old manager of the restaurant she was working at in Taber.

In March 2021, Richard Elliott, of Victoria, BC, was found guilty of sexual exploitation and sexual assault. Just on Wednesday (May 26), he was sentenced to six years in jail.

Taber Police Cst. Greg Schneider says youth deserve to be safe with they start to enter the work force, and police are always available to help victims when they’re ready to come forward.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
