Case Name Prv. Crt. Sentence Summary
R v Melrose,
2021 ABQB 73 (CanLII), per Renke J
AB SC 90 days (interference)
probation (luring)
R v Audet,
2020 ONSC 5039 (CanLII), per CM Smith J
ON SC 48 months
R v RAJ,
2020 ABQB 555 (CanLII), per Burrows J
AB SC 6 years sexual offending consisted of ..., putting his mouth on Z’s vaginal area, ... on three occasions, forcing vaginal penile penetration on Z at her home. ... on a number of separate occasions, while RAJ and Z were alone in the car, touching Z’s vaginal area over and under her clothing."
R v Poulsen,
2020 ONCJ 440 (CanLII), per Libman J
ON PC 4.5 years "The offender was convicted of multiple sexual assaults against a 14-year-old victim who was in his home, under the influence of hallucinogenic drugs, and under his direct control. It involved digital touching, sexual intercourse and fellatio. He recorded it on his phone. That added to the harm suffered by the victim. There was clear evidence of significant actual harm. Though there was concern because he was the single parent of a daughter around the same age, and had contact with her friends, he was determined to be a low risk to reoffend and to have real prospects for rehabilitation. He was sentenced to 4 1/2 years’ imprisonment. Again, this is a Provincial level decision from a different jurisdiction and, for that reason, carries less weight. Given the multiplicity of the incidents, the degree of harm, and the lack of guilty plea, in Poulsen, despite the prospects for rehabilitation being greater than those in the case at hand, a comparison of the relevant factors supports a lower sentence in the case at hand." [1]
R v DC,
2020 NLSC 78 (CanLII), per Knickle J
NL SC 7 years "The offender was found guilty of having committed 10 to 15 sexual assaults against his stepdaughter when she was between the ages of five and 11. They ranged from rubbing her vagina to full intercourse. He had a prior conviction for Internet luring. He was sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment. In comparison, the circumstances of the case at hand warrant a much lower sentence, particularly considering, in D.C.: the age of the victim; the number of incidents; the lack of a guilty plea; and the prior record, factors which do not obtain in the case at hand."
