2009 QCCQ 20918

In 2009 QCCQ 20918, the accused, Mr. B, has a long history of sexual deviance, sexual aggression, and prior child pornography charges. He was designated as high risk of reoffending by several psychologists. At the time of these offences, Mr. B was on probation and was prohibited from being near minors. Over a two-week period, he entered two different elementary schools where he hid in the bathroom stalls and took pictures of young girls, typically 6-years-old or younger, while they were in the bathroom. On three occasions the children informed a parent or teacher about the incident. Mr. B was convicted of nineteen counts of possession and distribution of child pornography. Mr. B was designated as a dangerous offender and was sentenced to an indeterminate time of imprisonment.

The accused appealed the trial decision, claiming that the court did not prove his actions constituted serious personal injury. The appeal was dismissed.
