Antonia Zerbisias calls him dogged. He certainly is.
In an update to his post about failing to meet 'appropriate criteria' for wanting the judge's reasons for convicted rapist Fernando Manuel Alves's no-jail sentence, Dr. Dawg writes:
UPDATE: (October 6) Reader and lawyer "truewest" suggests that I press on. Accordingly, I have this morning written back to Judge Rideout to ask what the "appropriate criteria" are for access to his Reasons for Sentence. Stay tuned.
Secret justice is outrageous. The public must know why, especially in the current CONservative atmosphere of 'tough on crime', a rapist serves NO time in prison for a brutal crime.
This needs to get political and media attention. Please, if you are a BC resident, contact your MPP to alert her or him to the situation and to ask what can be done.
Meanwhile, go read an update from the victim at meanoldmommy. Heart-wrenching testimony from a very brave broad.
PS. Where are the Conservatives on this?
