I have also posted a media update on the Monsignor Robert Borne proceedings:
16 September 2010: Court process continues
Borne’s judicial pre-trial is scheduled to continue 07 October 2010.
Borne has apparently opted for trial by judge alone.
Is it just my imagination or do a lot of priests standing trial on sex abuse charges in Canada choose to fore go a trial by jury? (Contrary I believe to popular opinion trial without jury is not a constitutional right in Canada http://www.bastionlaw.ca/-jury01.asp. My understanding in the past has been that the Crown must agree to proceed with a trial by judge alone. )
Anyway, back to work
Enough for now
