Probation for Sexual Assault on a Minor


CC: s.152 – Invitation to Sexual Touching


My client knocked at the window of a boy who was sleeping and asked him for a blow job. Both my client and the boy lived in the same group home. After the boy refused, my client entered his bedroom and repeated the demand, this time grabbing his hand and trying to force him to touch his penis. Again the boy refused. When another boy, who was awakened by the commotion, entered the bedroom, my client ran away.


Shortly before the day of trial, as a result of numerous mitigating factors, the Crown agreed to a suspended sentence and probation for 18 months for him to get the help he needs, instead of jail, with one of the conditions being that he not be around any child under the age of fourteen, without adult supervision.
