On May 14, 2016 the Sault Ste. Marie Police Criminal Investigations Division entered into an investigation of a historical sexual assault.

This investigation involved incidents that had occurred between the years 1972 – 1979 at which time the female victim was between the ages of 7 – 14 years old and was assaulted by a person known to her.

On Wednesday June 22, 2016 a 74 year old male from Sault Ste. Marie was arrested and charged with the following offences:
Incest, section 150 C.C.
Rape, section 144 C.C.

Sexual Intercourse with female under fourteen, section 146 C.C.

Charges laid in matters that are dated or historical are those that relate to the laws of the day. In this case these charges relate to the Criminal Code of Canada 1972.

The Sault Ste. Marie Police do not release the names of accused individuals when doing so may identify the victim. Police protect victims of crime.

The accused attended bail court in Sault Ste. Marie.

  1. Such courage to finally speak out against this sick man. Now he has to be in a courtroom with people STARING at him knowing what he did. I hope each and every day for the rest of his life that he has to re-live all the horrible things that he did to you and it finally will eat away at his soul and destroy him, just like it has done to you for all of these years. Bless you on this journey of healing and do not feel that you’ve made any mistake on having him pay for what he did to you when you were a little innocent child. His time to suffer is now and forever.

  2. Such courage and strength to finally speak out against him. All these years living with the tremendous hurt and pain and most likely carrying loads of guilt and shame that did not for one single second EVER belong to you. Let the healing begin for you now that he has to truly live with himself and the fact that people know what he did.

  3. Such strength and courage to finally speak up. So many years of pain and hurt and most likely carrying guilt and shame that was never hers to carry. Let the healing begin! Now he can live with the fact that it is out and he is a disgrace to the human race. How have you managed to live with yourself?
