SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2007 ONCA 461, Mr. E was charged with several sexual offences against his sisters and later his stepdaughter, beginning when they were between the ages of four to six years old. The of-fences included forced sexual contact, forced oral, vaginal, and anal intercourse, threats of violence and actual violence.
Mr. E took photos and videos of some of the assaults of his step-daughter. The trial judge rejected a joint submission for 10 years’ imprisonment and sentenced Mr. E to 14 years’ imprisonment.
At the Court of Appeal, the sentence was reduced to 10 years’ imprisonment, taking into ac-count his guilty plea and finding the joint submission for sentencing was not manifestly unjust.
