No Jail Time For Canadian Child Molester?

By John Mesirow



How can that be? I have no idea. As reported in the Edmonton Sun:

According to the agreed facts, the victim disclosed to her parents that Lister had sexually assaulted her on approximately six occasions between September 2005 and June 2006 when she was between 11 and 12 years old.
The girl said she'd been alone with Lister in the day-care van when the incidents took place and could only recall details of the last assault, which involved him telling her to lie down on the bench seat and then fondling her.
If you are incredulous now, it gets worse.
Court also heard Lister had worked as a janitor for the Edmonton Public School Board and as a bus driver for Edmonton Transit until he was convicted of rape and gross indecency in 1981 and sentenced to six years.
One has to wonder how many other victims of this predator are out there, given the 25 years just between these 2 convictions. So what was the punishment?
Lister was ordered to be under a nightly curfew for the two years, to take counselling, to perform 150 hours of community service and to stay away from young children.
He was also placed on the national sex offender registry for 20 years, ordered to submit his DNA to the national DNA databank and banned for life from going to any parks, playgrounds, pools, daycares or any other places where there are children under 14.
Oh, plus two years probation. BFD! This guy is a predator. UFB. No justice. Here's the source.
