I was home late – a bad weather system made for a difficult drive in the country 🙁 But, home safe and sound at 7 pm. I have posted two articles re Father George Smith‘s day in court today:
27 February 2013: George Ansel Smith’s victims relay impact of sexual assaults
27 February 2013: Victim forgives disgraced priest for abuse
There will be more later.
And, a few dates on the Father Joe LeClair charges. Look at this:
30 August 2013: continuation of the judicial pre-trial hearing (that will NOT be open to the public)
20-31 January 2014: Preliminary hearing, Ottawa courthouse
24-28 February 2014: Preliminary hearing, Ottawa courthouse
Yes, that’s right: 2014. And that’s not trial!
Also, he has elected to got for trial by judge and jury in the Ontario Superior Court. That means that if a judge determines from the preliminary hearing that there is sufficient evidence to go to trial on any or all charges it will be trial by judge and jury in the Ontario Superior Court.
Now, time to grab a bite to eat 🙂
Enough for now,
