SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2014 CanLII 33080, the Court imposed a 7-year and 7-month global sentence for luring, child pornography, sexual interference and other offences, against 6 victims, 5 of whom were minors.
Mr. D, a self-diagnosed hebephile and former theatre director, used various social media platforms to contact, groom, and exchange sexually explicit photos and conversation with children. Mr. D exchanged sexually explicit instant messages and photographs with three teenage boys and girls. He also videotaped a former adult girlfriend during sex, without her knowledge or consent. His original list of charges was 29 counts long and all dealt with some area of sexual exploitation. He pled guilty for 12 of these counts and was subsequently convicted.
