The invitation to sexual touching charges came when Massick, 46, was employed by Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools at John Barsby High School.
Simpson said Massick was assigned to a class for students with special needs that included the 14- and 15-year-old victims.
Massick took the two vulnerable boys on several fishing trips outside of school hours.
Police questioned the two victims, who described Massick touching them sexually, while he also showed them pornography in his van at Colliery Dam Park.
Massick also exposed his penis and masturbated in front of the boys.
The perpetrator also sent the couple sexual messages and asked one of the boys if he wanted to have a threesome with the other victim.
The trips were arranged by Massick with the school and the parents of the victims, Simpson said.
“They thought at the time they were doing the right thing. She (the mother of a victim) confirmed that (the victim) went fishing seven times in May and once in June 2021.”
The sexually explicit messages came to the attention of the school principal and the mother of one victim, prompting an investigation by the Nanaimo RCMP.
Restrictive conditions for sex offenders are also in place for 10 years, including Massick not being allowed to be employed where he is in a position of trust.
His name will also be added to the National Sex Offender Registry for life.
