SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2012 ONCJ 522, Mr. K was found guilty of theft under $5000 and criminal harassment after stealing his ex-partner’s phone, address book, and cellphone, and using those items to distribute her nude photos. K posted his ex-partner’s personal information on a dating site, prompting phone calls and visits from strange men at night. He also left a sex tape at her door, calling it a “Valentine’s gift.”
Mr. K denied physically hurting the victim, stealing her property, or distributing her intimate images. The Court found that his testimony is not credible, and held the ex-partner was harassed, K knew she was harassed, and that she reasonably feared for her safety. K was sentenced to 90-days imprisonment served on weekends.
