Judge wrong not to sentence Quebec engineer to jail for sex assault: Appeal Court

The Quebec Court of Appeal has overturned a conditional discharge given to an engineer who pleaded guilty to sexual assault and instead imposed a 12-month jail sentence. In a written decision released Wednesday, the court found that the trial judge made errors in deciding Simon Houle’s sentence, leading him to diminish the seriousness of the crimes and Houle’s level of responsibility.
