SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2017 NSSC 292, the victim, Ms. KB, was suffering from a drug addiction. Mr. R was exchanging drugs for sex with Ms. KB and was also recording the sexual encounters on a video tape. Ms. KB stated that Mr. R threatened to show the video tapes to the police, and her child’s father and her mother-in-law if she did not continue on with the sexual relationship. However, there was evidence that Mr. R threatened to release the video tapes but there was no evidence of extortion for sexual favours and was acquitted on that offence.
