Hi everyone,

This is a story of law and a judge and a perp and a victim. If only laws were written with feelings included!

Once again, the Canadian justice system fails to see the effects of sexual abuse on males, and blames the victim! On the perp, "Treatment of his apparent bisexuality"???? Oh for the love of God! "“God bless you,” the judge told the convict. "

"adding he would “hope and pray” Tejeda would continue receiving the support of his wife and family, who sat behind him in court."

I hope and pray that the Crown appeals.

I am deeply ashamed to be associated with this. Deeply, and profoundly ashamed. cry

Jim

As someone from Ottawa I can say I find this just as upsetting. Regarding the perpetrator's sexuality, why should it have anything to do with it? Sexual abuse is an abuse of power, not an expression of a healthy sexuality.
