I have received word from a reliable source that thrice convicted former residential school supervisor Paul Leroux has been granted day parole and will be on full parole in July of this year.
You may recall that the self-represented and defiant Leroux, who sexually abused a number of boys at the Grollier Hall residential school in Inuvik, was mostly recently convicted (2013) for sexually abusing boys at the Beauval Indian Residential School in Saskatchewan. In December 2013 was sentenced to three years. He was out on day parole in 10 months, and on full parole after serving one year.
However, in May 2015, in response to an appeal filed by the Crown, Leroux’s sentence was increased to eight years. Back to jail he went. (Leroux had also filed an appeal, and as a result one of his convictions was overturned, however, overturned or no, the decision on the Crown’s appeal sent him back to jail! )
Can you believe it? Leroux’ sentence was increased by five years, and yet, a measly few months later he is out on day parole, and next month will be on full parole.
What a lark!!!
What a farce!!!
