Reading between the lines of this story it would appear he raped this young woman which resulted in her “bleeding profusely”.
Defence had asked for unconditional discharge to allow him to serve in Afghanistan. Do we really want to export our sexual criminals to other countries?
What he did end up with was “18 months probation and a $1,500 fine, which will be paid to a community organization that assists sexual assault victims.”
Oh well no harm no foul, eh?
The Crown had requested a prison sentence of two years less a day.
At his sentencing, Boulet asked his victim and his family to forgive him.
The victim, who name is protected under the law, has maintained that if Boulet had said sorry earlier and had shown some respect after the incident, the situation wouldn’t have ended up in court.
The assault took place in June 2004, at a birthday party held at the victim’s family home. Boulet had drunk too much to drive and decided to spend the night at the house.
During the night, he sexually assaulted the 18-year old woman, who was too drunk to give consent. After the assault, Boulet reportedly asked the young woman, who was bleeding profusely, to not talk about what happened.
The Department of National Defence will have the final word on whether Boulet is allowed to stay in the Canadian Forces.
