SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2017 NSCA 13, Mr. D applied to amend his notice of appeal and sought bail while appealing the case, both of which were denied.
At trial Mr. D pleaded guilty to sexual assault, a sexual interference charge was dropped by the Crown.
When he was 21 years old, Mr. D befriended 14-year-old Ms. M on a social networking site. After four days of online messaging, he arranged for a taxi to bring her to his home where he engaged in digital penetration, vaginal intercourse, and fellatio with her. He was reported that same night when her parents found the messages and his phone number on her social net-working account.
He was sentenced to 12 months in jail and two years’ probation. Additional orders included registration as a sex offender, a weapons ban, a DNA order, and limitations on being in contact with children.
