SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2017 ONSC 3425, Mr. A pleaded guilty to the non-consensual distribution of intimate images. Mr. A’s coworker was using Mr. A’s phone. He sent two nude male images to the daughter of a family friend of Mr. A’s. Mr. A denies the images were of him. The complainant sent two images of her, including one of her vagina. Mr. A showed the images to two co-workers and then claimed to have deleted the images. The courts held that the distribution in this case was limited and therefore the Mr. A’s actions fell on the “less serious end of the spectrum of this offence”.
He was given a conditional discharge, probation for 12 months with the condition that he not contact the complainant or attend places where she may be, and not exchange intimate images or same intimate images on his devices.
