SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2007 QCCA 605, Mr. K appealed his conviction of sexual assault and procuring sexual services from a person under the age of 18.
Mr. K invited Ms. L to come to his house nearby and use his home phone, after seeing her ask-ing for money to use a payphone outside the subway station. She alleged that he tried to kiss her twice and offered her $50 to have sexual intercourse with him. He claimed that he was innocent, and that she had physically harassed him on the street and blackmailed him. Due to contradictions in her statement, such as whether it was a cellphone or a home phone and how many calls she made, and a lack of any evidence, the appeal was allowed and a new trial ordered.
