Halifax Judge Gregory Lenehan has caused outrage throughout Canada after saying ‘a drunk can consent’ after a woman was assaulted by a cab driver Bassam Al-Rawi.

 

Normally we speak out on cases involving child molestation cases but in this case we feel that the judge’s ruling in this case will be used by many defence lawyers to get their clients off on charges where alcohol is involved during the rape .

There are so many issues with this case and in time they will be argued in the media and in a courthouse but the urgency should be placed on the crown to appeal the ruling. Now I know there are a lot of people that are rallying to have this judge removed and its a long and hard process to have done but it can be done, the issue in this case and the reason were speaking out today is there is a time limit for the crown to appeal the ruling to the supreme court of N.S   .

I would encourage EVERYONE to contact your MLA’s and MP’s and ask them to speak to the crown about appealing  this ruling and we would encourage EVERYONE call the crown’s office and ask them if they are going to appeal it and if they are not then keep asking questions for a reason.

We have seen this in past cases we have assisted on and the crown will say that they are looking into it and try and drag it out past the 30 days and then there is nothing we can do about it, so again we ask that everyone keep on the crowns offices and keep putting the questions to them each and every time you call .  1 person calling 5000 times is harassment, 5000 people calling once is concerned citizens 🙂 .

We are here to assist in any way we can and please feel free to contact us with any questions 24/7 .  Just hit the need help tab on the left hand side of the page on the website or message us on our Facebook page.
