I was kind of hoping somebody from each province would start and maintain an ongoing list/notice of sex offenders ...especially pedophiles; however, I suppose there is nobody up to it in each province. Therefore; being totally enraged this morning by reading that a pedo who had been abusing a pre-school child (baby imo.) for over two years, received a sentence of little more than a slap on the wrist, I am starting a thread for Newfoundland. I couldn't find one on here, so if there is one some where here, maybe admin could incorporate the two together. I'm thinking that could be done with the Cape Breton and Mainland Nova Scotia pedophile threads - there are more than one..... Sexual assault threads should be another category for each province I'm thinking.
ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — A 66-year-old Newfoundland man has been sentenced to a year in jail for sexually assaulting a three-year-old girl over two years ago.
Topics : Newfoundland , Mount Pearl
Reginald O’Keefe of Mount Pearl was also handed three years of probation and was registered as a sex offender during a court appearance in St. John’s Thursday.
O’Keefe was known to his victim’s family.
The girl’s mother told the court she feels anguish knowing the man who assaulted her daughter has been living as a free man for over two years.
She also expressed disappointment in the court system for dragging out the case.
O’Keefe had been set to go to trial last November, but changed his plea to guilty a day into the trial.http://www.capebretonpost.com/News/Local/2013-02-08/article-3173110/Newfoundland-man-gets-one-year-jail-sentence-for-sex-assault-of-young-girl/1
