MONTREAL A 93-year-old Montreal man will not go to prison for sexually abusing his daughters when they were children some 50 years ago.

Philippe Hamelin, who is deaf, nearly blind and suffers from a disease similar to Alzheimers, has been given a sentence of two years less a day to be served in the community.

That is what his lawyer was asking for, while the Crown wanted a prison term of between seven and nine years.

Hamelin was convicted last year of incest, sexual molestation and assault causing bodily harm against his daughters between 1956 and 1963.

His daughters Marcelle and Michele, now in their 60s, had the publication ban on their identities lifted at their own request last year.

The Star posted a lot of feminist posts with few posts showing any other view, many of the posts were obviously from the Feminist Lobby groups. This was the wrong case for them to have a knee jerk reaction.

The defendant was deaf, blind, and 93 years old, up against two women, a "She said", be it two women saying the same thing, alleging events 50 years ago. The fact is, when 93 year fathers are about to die, and you have two middle aged daughters, there exists a probability that they are looking for revenge. The courts are increasingly "a stage" where women can "act", and apparently apply a reverse onus that is ILLEGAL. Canada is now a lawless society where women can make any allegation be it hearsay or otherwise and have a man convicted when he cannot or is not allowed to have a trial or a hearing. Phillip Hamelin very obviously was unable to defend himself against charges whose only evidence is the complainant/s whose evidence cannot be any more reliable than the accused who strongly denied the allegations. Its typical of the degeneration of our courts into a perverted Feminist Sharia Law against men.

 

The feminist mail groups must be running hot today all with suggestions. Many of these posts open with a statement all would agree with and ask them to agree with their post. Notice the similar wording of posts and their twisted leading statements all from phony looking submission names, some of which appear to be the same person. Bottom line, he is 93 and they wait till he is dying before making a "She said" allegation 50 years after the alleged offense that he adamantly denies. Only the parties know this answer, that's way less than beyond reasonable doubt.

She said, 50 years ago, Beyond reasonable doubt?

Sad Case

Childhood sexual abuse allegations can cause a lynch mob in a flash and unfortunately, the feminist lobby group have decided to clutch at this case. Sorry, girls, its the wrong case. You need to use some legal logic, some legal reasoning, think of an accused legal rights, this case did not cross the burden of proof, it obviously was a political verdict and not a legal verdict and that's where the courts have turned into a mindless blind and deaf lynch mob all in the name of feminist political correctness.
