Mario Girard, Dolbeau-Mistassini, could face a six-month prison sentence for having in his possession videos and photos of child pornography of children 3 to 12 years.
This is the sentence that has required the Crown Attorney Julie Lajoie, which considers the actions of the man 60 months totally repugnant. “For three years of sexual abuse videos of children were sexual stimulation of the man. He reveled in the rape of children to masturbate in front of these images. He never thought that they were victims who were filmed. For these reasons, we must denounce these acts and to obtain a significant deterrent, it must impose a severe sentence. It takes a clear message, “said Lajoie proclaimed Me.
It considers that the fact that the man was a bus driver at the time added to the aggravating nature of the crime. “It’s a job where you have to be whiter than white. Parents entrust their children to the bus drivers and think they are safe, “she added.
The lawyer Mario Girard, Mr. Francis Boucher, acting in replacement of Mr. Donald Dupéré, did testify the man and his wife. Mario Girard said he regretted the gesture and he does not know why he ended up possessing one hundred videos and nearly 600 photos of child pornography. “I found myself stupid and I want to correct that. I will follow all therapies thing, “he has testified to the judge Paul Guimond Wednesday at the Roberval Courthouse.
His wife, who punctuated his testimony with sobs, said she had decided to stay with him to help him out of his problematic. She mentioned that he now accepted to talk about.
“As Mr. Girard has performed well and has met its conditions for two and a half years, he did not use a computer and that he repented, I consider that the minimum sentence of 90 days imprisonment and adding 140 hours of community service would be appropriate, “argued Mr. Boucher.
Mario Girard was arrested in November 2013 during a police operation that led to the arrest of 28 cyberpedophiles. Jean-Sébastien Thibeault and Frank Gravel Saguenay were also accused in this roundup.
Judge Paul Guimond took the case under advisement. He will award in July.
