Child abuse sentence of 15 years upheld

by JWC
(Canada)

Hey Darlene, love this Google Child Abuse news feed you have implemented. Gives me an opportunity to read and comment on child abuse news all in one place.


Speaking of which, thumbs up to the Supreme Court of Canada for re-imposing the 15-year sentence to a Quebec man who was convicted of sexually assaulting his four-year-old daughter and taking pornographic pictures of her and a young friend. Can you believe a lower court had previously reduced the sentence to nine years?

The vote was eight to one in favor of the 15-year sentence. The only dissenting vote was from Justice Morris Fish, who felt the original sentence was overly severe in comparison to sentences in similar cases. I guess no one has told the Honorable Justice that two wrongs do not make a right.

Thanks to the other eight Justices who have used their common sense and imposed an appropriate sentence for this reprehensible act.
