R v WMW, 2023 ABPC 14 (CanLII), per Cochard J AB PC 2 years less a day CSO "a 49-year-old woman pleaded guilty to sexually touching her daughter, aged 13, but who functioned at the age of an eight-year-old. The touching was of three or four instances of the victim’s breasts and clitoris. On one occasion the offender inserted a vibrator in the victim’s vagina. Alongside obvious aggravating factors, the offender expressed remorse, and had reduced moral culpability owing to Gladue factors and mental health concerns. A conditional sentence was ordered for a period of two years less a day." (Quoting from R v AL, 2023 ABKB 374 (CanLII))

R v AB, 2023 ONCA 254 (CanLII), per Copeland JA ON CA 5 years imprisonment "the Ontario Court of Appeal reduced a sentence of seven years’ imprisonment to five years for repeated sexual touching of the offender’s step-daughter between the ages of 10–15. The offender groomed the victim and was in a position of trust. The sexual abuse continued for more than four years.

R v BM, 2023 ONCA 224 (CanLII), per Harvison Young JA ON CA 7 years imprisonment "The Court of Appeal increased a conditional sentence of two years less a day to seven years’ imprisonment. The accused was between the ages of eighteen and twenty-two years old at the time he sexually abused the two victims over a period of forty-three months. He pleaded guilty. The victims’ father befriended the accused through their local church, and the accused was invited to live with the family. Both victims were about twelve years old at the time the abuse started. The abuse included anal penetration on four occasions with the male victim and twenty to thirty incidents of vaginal penetration with the female victim. In increasing the sentence to seven years, it is clear that the Court of Appeal viewed the original sentence as too lenient, given the “horrific” aggravating factors."

Victim One was the accused’s stepson, who awoke one night to find the accused sucking his penis. He was eight or nine years old at the time. Victim Two was the accused’s step-nephew. He awoke one night to find the accused rubbing his erect penis on his backside and attempting to touch his genitals. This occurred during a sleepover at Victim One’s home. In that case, the parties made a joint submission for a conditional sentence, which the trial judge rejected as inappropriate in light of Friesen." (Quoting from R v NZ, 2023 ONSC 5005 (CanLII))

Some months later the offender victimized a 7-year-old by pulling down her pants and underwear and rubbed his clothed body against her buttocks and vaginal area while he masturbated inside his pants. The offender was intoxicated on both occasions. Sentences of eight- and 10-months incarceration were substituted for an 18-month conditional sentence.

The sentence was held to be “on the higher end” but was affirmed as the outcome of an individualized sentencing process: in Lafrance the offender was convicted after trial and showed no remorse or rehabilitation – indeed no mitigating factors were found; the two year consecutive term was part of a 6.5 year overall sentence for four sex-related convictions against children. There was no application for a conditional sentence"

The complainant was the offender’s step-granddaughter. She was seven years of age when the incidents of sexual touching occurred over a period of weeks or months.

The offender threatened to kill her if she told anyone what he had done. The Court sentenced the offender to six years on the count of sexual interference and one year concurrent on the count of uttering threats."

R v RA, 2022 ONSC 1161 (CanLII), per Goldstein J ON SC 2 years imprisonment "the accused was convicted of two counts of sexual interference contrary to s. 151 of the Criminal Code. The victim was his stepdaughter. The accused on one occasion started hugging and kissing the victim using his tongue. He kissed her on the lips and put his hands down her pyjama shorts. He touched her vagina on the “inside”. This incident lasted around ten seconds and the victim immediately texted her mother. The accused had kissed her twice earlier on the lips when she was alone with him in the car; once at a grocery store, and once at a pet store. The sexual touching came to the attention of authorities when the victim’s teacher saw cuts on her arms. She told her teacher that her step-father touched her. ... The accused in that case was 41. He immigrated to Canada with the victim and her mother in April 2017 and had no criminal record. In the pre-sentence report, he continued to vehemently deny that he committed the offences. He was sentenced to 6 months jail on count 1, dealing with kissing, and sentenced to 2 years jail on count 2, to be served concurrently to count 1, followed by 3 years probation." [2]

R v DAD, 2022 YKSC 62 (CanLII), per Wenckebach J YK SC "a case of sexual interference of the 28-year-old accused’s 15-year-old cousin. DAD’s sexual misconduct was placing his hand on the victim’s virginal area over her shorts and moved it over her crotch. A conditional sentence was ordered by the sentencing judge but was overturned in favour of a 90-day intermittent sentence. It was held the trial judge erred – when concluding the misconduct was at “the lower end of the scale” – by not considering the evidence of significant and profound ongoing negative impact to the victim as part of the gravity of the offence."

This occurred while the offender held the victim’s hands and arms pinned above her head. The touching lasted about a full minute. It was not, as the sentencing judge found, “a simple grope”. The sentencing judge also found few mitigating factors; he found the psychological report and references before the court were entitled to limited weight; he found nothing in the offender’s conduct or background that tended to decrease his personal responsibility for the offence."

The accused had massaged the victim on her chest and stomach area and on her back, by putting his arm between her legs while her genital area was exposed. He was a trusted family friend who was babysitting at the time of the offence. The accused was acquitted of sexual interference because the Court was not satisfied that the touching was done for a sexual purpose. Mr. Justice Brundrett noted that he was not able to ascribe a sexual motive to the offence which he described as a “grossly misguided massage technique”: para. 74. In this case, there is no doubt as to Mr. Gerrard’s sexual motive for the crime." (Quoting from R v Gerrard, 2021 BCSC 1219 (CanLII))

The British Columbia Court of Appeal dismissed the offender’s appeal against a sentence of nine months imprisonment followed by 24 months of probation. The 26-year-old offender had engaged in sexual intercourse with the 13-year-old victim on at least two occasions. The offender was a friend of the victim’s older brothers. The offender was exposed to alcohol abuse and had experienced physical and sexual abuse during his childhood, spent some time in care, and was suffering from depression at the time of the offence. The offender had no criminal record and led a prosocial lifestyle. In view of Friesen, the court concluded that the sentence was “clearly not demonstrably unfit.”"

The accused had no prior criminal record but had accumulated several convictions since the offending. He presented with several Gladue factors and prospects for rehabilitation. The sentencing court found many aggravating factors, including the victim’s vulnerability given her state of intoxication on the final incident, the fact that the accused had been on bail for previous incidents, the breach of trust, as well as the destructive impact on the victim and the relationships with members of her immediate family."

On the day of the offence the victim was 16 years old; Mr. R was a father figure to SR since she was a small child. Mr. R followed SR into the trailer at a campground and eventually took off her pants and began performing cunnilingus on her. She was crying and he eventually stopped and broke down in a chair asking himself what he had just done. The Crown sought two to four years’ imprisonment; the defense initially recommended an 18–22-month conditional sentence order but instead noted that it was seeking a three-year period of probation with conditions to make it comparable to a conditional sentence order with house arrest. Mr. R. accepted responsibility and expressed remorse but did not want to partake in the Sexual Offender Assessment nor rehabilitative counselling and still consume alcohol even though it contributed to the event. Nonetheless, Mr. R wrote an apology letter, entered a guilty plea, reported himself to the Department of Community Services, had no prior record and was gainfully employed earning a good income. Mr. R was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment." (Quoting from R v WF, 2023 NSSC 282 (CanLII))

He was on a multitude of medications that required regular adjustment to address his progressive deterioration. Dr. Kleiner, a movement disorder specialist, advised that P.S.’ symptoms had become more problematic since October 2020, and he required specialty care to address this complex disorder. Medications must be very exact and timely. ... Given that a conditional sentence was legally available to P.S., the trial judge had to consider whether such a sentence was appropriate in the circumstances... .

R v Gargan, 2021 NWTTC 9 (CanLII), per Gagnon J NWT SC "the 18-year-old accused had attended a community event with the young adolescent victim, who was 13 years old at the time. He reached out to hug her, and touched her buttocks. Both the accused and the victim were Indigenous. The accused entered an early guilty plea to the offence of sexual interference ...The sentencing judge concluded this was a brief and isolated contact, which had limited impact on the victim. The accused was remorseful. At the time of the offence, he did not have a criminal record. Gladue factors were present. The sentencing judge also found the accused’s risk to reoffend was low as he was continuing to take active steps to address his addiction and trauma. The sentencing judge found that a proportionate sentence for Mr. Gargan would range between a suspended sentence with a period of probation to a short period of custody, including a conditional sentence. ... She sentenced the offender to a term of imprisonment of one day deemed served by his attendance in court, followed by a period of probation of 12 months. ...the actual conduct at issue in Gargan would be caught by the offence of sexual assault. In addition, the personal circumstances of Mr. Gargan are certainly not unfamiliar to courts in the Yukon. In any event, as this situation occurred in the caselaw, and considering the comments I made earlier regarding the similarities between the offence of sexual interference and sexual assault against a child, I am of the view it automatically constitutes a reasonable hypothetical that I can consider, even though it involves an accused pleading guilty to sexual interference instead of sexual assault.

P.R.J.’s daughter was seven or eight years old at the time of the offences. There are many parallels to B.L.M.’s case. Justice Davies, in imposing sentence, noted at paragraphs 9 to 24 that a conditional sentence order would not only appropriately address the necessary sentencing objectives of general and specific denunciation and deterrence but, more likely than would P.R.J.’s imprisonment, also aid in achieving another important sentencing objective by promoting the rehabilitation of the P.R.J."

The timeframe of the offence covered a period of approximately six months. At the time of the offence the complainant identified as female but at the time of the sentencing identified as male. The offender and the complainant were both Sea Cadets, and at the time of the offence the offender was an officer in training. As a result of communications sent by the offender to the complainant, the offender was expelled from the Sea Cadets for violating the code of conduct. Weeks after being expelled, the offender commenced a sexual relationship with the complainant, including engaging in sexual intercourse on multiple occasions. The offence had a profound impact on the complainant. The offender had a positive pre-sentence report and no prior criminal record. The court imposed a 15 month custodial sentence. The court emphasizes the “close-in-age exception,” observing that had the offender been four months closer in age the complainant’s consent to the sexual activity would have provided the offender a defence to the charge. The court observes as well that it “seems quite the leap” to go from no criminal liability where the participants were four months closer in age to a mid-single digit penitentiary sentence – “the norm according to Friesen” (para. 32).

R v KM, 2020 NSSC 278 (CanLII), per Murray J NS SC 5 years imprisonment "After trial a 21-year-old accused was found guilty of sexually assaulting a child victim who was 15. The accused had an adult criminal record, since the offence, and a youth record. He was described as in need of supports for mental health and addictions. His life appeared to lack ambition and structure. ... The facts related to a single incident; however, they were particularly aggravating. On the date of the offence the accused was introduced to the victim through a mutual friend. He invited her upstairs, telling her he had a question for her. Once in the room he began kissing her. She pushed him away and he threw her down on a mattress and pinned her down. He pulled off her clothing and forced intercourse."

R v Poulsen, 2020 ONCJ 440 (CanLII), per Libman J ON PC 4.5 years imprisonment "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."

R v DC, 2020 NLSC 78 (CanLII), per Knickle J NL SC 7 years imprisonment "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."

R v LSN, 2020 BCCA 109 (CanLII), per Fitch JA BC CA 2 years less a day "the offender twice touched his 11 year old stepdaughter’s breast and once fondled her vagina without penetration. The Court of Appeal recognized the offender’s exceptional circumstances but held that a suspended sentence was unfit. The Court acceded to the Crown’s suggestion of imprisonment for a term of 2 years less a day, but noted it was at the bottom end of the appropriate range." (Quoting from R v EF, 2021 ABQB 639 (CanLII))

"the Indigenous offender was convicted of one count of sexual interference. The 33-year-old offender had engaged in three incidents of sexual touching with his 11-year-old step-daughter in the family home. He was intoxicated on two of these occasions. The offender had a previous conviction for sexual interference of a 14-year-old step-niece. He was on probation at the time of the offence at issue. The offender had experienced neglect, verbal abuse, physical abuse and sexual abuse in his childhood. He had spent time in care. He had a long-standing problem with alcohol and was considered to pose a relatively high risk to reoffend. The offender had quit drinking by the time of the sentencing hearing and indicated remorse for his offence. The victim had held the offender in high regard and was devastated. The sentencing judge sentenced the offender to an effective ten month prison term, plus probation." (Quoting from R v CCC, 2021 BCSC 599 (CanLII)), at para 79

R v Parsons, 2020 ONSC 5412 (CanLII), per Gorman J ON SC 1 years CSO "[T]he 80-year-old offender was convicted of one “non-violent”[1] incident of sexual interference. The victim was nine years old at the time of the offence. The aggravating factors included the age of the victim, the offender’s grooming activities and the offender’s position of trust as a volunteer tutor. The mitigating factors included the offender’s age and severe medical issues, the support of the offender’s wife and the absence of a criminal record. The sentencing judge recognized that general deterrence was a paramount consideration and held that denunciation was satisfied by the indignity of the conviction for a heinous offence. The court concluded that, if incarcerated, the offender would likely not survive his sentence due to the COVID-19 pandemic, his age and his underlying health conditions. The sentencing judge imposed a one-year conditional sentence order." (Quoting from R v CCC, 2021 BCSC 599 (CanLII)), at para 76
