Hope he wins a shitload of money and this leaves an impression on other women who try and pull the same shit.

The gossip was merciless and long-lasting, he claims, escalating into vandalism of his vehicle and threats of violence against himself and his friends. It became so bad Mr. Caron fled his home in Vanderhoof, B.C., to go into “hiding” in Prince George.

Fucking white knights

I think that there should be a new law formed named Simon's law that states that she needs to register in a database of false rape accusers and needs to disclose it immediately to any man she speaks to in a non-formal setting.

Then the world might take this seriously.

yes, but the females who lie need to be found guilty of lying in a separate trial. Every female that doesnt get a rape conviction isnt a liar.

26 upvotesidle_reception5 years ago

Doesn't matter. Long story short I'm facing legal issues because of a women who's filled two prior charges that she ended up recanting. One completely, in court, and dropping the second one once another women feced up her story was fabricated.

My lawyer thinks it's a joke they're even taking it serious.

8 upvotescover205 years ago

Well if she testified that the charges were false, then she should be convicted of the false and malicious charge -- if you're lucky enough to be in a jurisdiction where that's a crime.

14 upvotesidle_reception5 years ago

She testified she may have said yes but said no half way through. No charges against her but it was enough to get that guy off the hook.

The second incident the other women came out and told detectives she lied to prevent her bf from thinking she cheated, this came out after the man was imprisoned for 4 months. Even more twisted she fucked two brothers, same night, same room but only claimed rape on then eldest. (he kicked her out in the morning)

Unfortunately I live in a state where this can all be accessed by a simple Google search. Try explaining first and second degree sexual assault charges along with two other felony charges that stemmed from these false allegations to friends, family, employers.

I live in a 75k+ town and still hear his name get thrown around as a rapist. No charges against either girl.

Technically any woman who either admits to, or is found to, have made a false rape accusation is guilty of falsifying a police report and perjury. They're liable civilly, too.

Unfortunately, as we all know, that would be terrible PR for a police department and local governments.

In many states If you commit perjury you are subject to the penalties of the crime you lied about. This should include mandatory minimum sentences of multiple years for people who lie about rape.

Unfortunately the pussy pass is recognized by most courts of law so 'justice' is served merely in finding the male innocent.

I agree, and you shouldn't have to "win" the right to sue someone for defamation, especially in something this serious. If you didn't actually rape the person who's accusing you, you have every right to receive compensation for your time, stress, and reputation loss.

Um.. Have you ever actually met people? There are a significant number of women that don't like men in general. There are also a significant number of men that feel it's their job to 'protect' women from 'bad' men, despite the fact that their White Knighting is literally sexism at it's finest. Treating women differently because they are women.

I really wish this was hyperbole but there are plenty of cases that have proven what I've said to be true. Recent news of a man having his genitals cut off by his psychotic wife was met with posts of support for the WOMAN. Suggestions that the man deserved to have his genitals removed. Imagine the opposite of this happening. A man mutilating his wife because she did something to upset him. The outrage would be real.

Oh, I apologize to all the women I just verbally raped with my words of truth but you were asking for it by wearing those headphones.

I'll explain. What do hamsters do best? Run their damn wheel. They don't care about the world outside. They only care about the wheel. Such are women and 'feelings'. Women will do anything to preserve their feelings of indignation, however terribly rationalized it is. By hamster we mean rationalizing anything to make yourself feel better. The way a hamster would just run its wheel no matter what.

Guys hamster too. When they make up excuses they know aren't the real reason why they don't do something. Like saying nah I'm too comfortable in this chair I don't want to go talk to her. Reality? Anxiety to approach.
The wheel keeps on turning to keep worldview consistent and feeling nice.
Women will rationalize and where any moderately self aware guy would feel guilty for rationalization, they will honestly believe their own bullshit.

She's a minor. Not sure how Canadian law works, but were I to hazard a wild guess, she won't own a house or any other significant asset he can take.

0 upvotesrattamahatta5 years ago

Do you have any evidence for their parents being involved? How are you "pretty sure".

1 upvoteshohndo5 years ago

I don't know. All I know is she's a minor.

According to my research, under certain conditions a "independent" or "spouse" can sue without a representative that's over 18. There are a couple other reasons, but I'm sure those are the most common.

There were a bunch of terms they used for someone over 18 to be their representative and "guardian" was one of the first mentioned.

The situation doesn't affect me so I don't really give a shit. If this were in the US, I'd spend more time on it.

In the US, parents are responsible for their kids financially unless the kid proves to the court they are independent at some point before the case. So, if they are involved, or not, they have to pay up. They are the liable and responsible ones for their kin.

2 upvotesTruthFromAnAsshole5 years ago

Don't worry, OP is talking out of their ass. Parents are not held liable for their children's tort in Canada.

In some cases, if the child is young enough, a court can find that the child isn't liable, but even for a toddler, the parent isn't held liable.

If she did something while performing working duties, while working for her parents, then possibly, but that's a totally different doctrine.

1 upvotesFeministOnABuffalo5 years ago

How about the family being held liable for all the damages their son caused by setting off the sprinkler in his school?

Something like $40,000 because their son was throwing scissors at it.

2 upvotesTruthFromAnAsshole5 years ago

That's a very special circumstance.

His parents were able to be held liable for that because of Section 10 the School Act (British Columbia) which states that if school property is damaged by a student the parents can be held jointly liable.

So in the case you're referring to (Nanaimo-Ladysmith school district no. 68 V. Dean) the trial judge was bound by the School Act, and the precedent from Coquitlam School District V. Clement.

In fact, the judge actually stated she disagreed with this act, despite being bound by it.

17 As an initial observation, I agree with the submissions of both counsel that this provision appears to be "draconian", in the sense that it could have a disastrous financial effect on a young person and his or her parents. Mr. Justice Esson said as much in Clement at para. 16: The section has the capacity to inflict upon parents, by imposing liability quite irrespective of fault on their part, a harsh and perhaps unjust burden of potentially ruinous dimensions. In this case damages of some $3 million are alleged. These, however, are matters for the legislature. It may be that the legislature will consider whether the section now serves a social purpose sufficient to justify the hardships which it can create.

To answer your question, we still don't have vicarious liability to parents as a concept in our legal system, but that particular action had a statutory law that applied to specific circumstance.

For the case at hand, even if she defamed him at school, this isn't a crime against the school's property, and that statute wouldn't apply.

Two different topics. Children being protected from liability is one thing, their parents being held liable for something that is not a result of their actions is another. But if you have the law handy, point me to it.

11 upvotesGlenwalk5 years ago

He won't lose. He just needs to show 51% that she was lying. His records of where he was + her statements to the police/social media do just that.

6 upvotesTruthFromAnAsshole5 years ago

He just needs to show 51% that she was lying.

This is a Canadian case, so this is mistaken... but in a good way.

In Canada, in a defamation case the defendant has to prove that what they published is true. (Published can mean pretty much anything, including saying it to just one other person).

He has to prove she did say it, and has to prove damages caused by her actions (damage to reputation counts). But, once he's shown she said it, she may prove it's true.

Edit: in Canada, for civil law, it is balance of probabilities as well, not beyond reasonable doubt.

1 upvotesTruthFromAnAsshole5 years ago

She will pay. Parents are not vacariously liable for their children's actions. There are some cases where a very young child committed a tort, and even then, parents aren't vacariously liable (interestingly enough, the children can be too young, and so no one is found liable; but the wouldn't apply here).

So she will almost certainly be found liable, and it will be her responsible for paying it. We almost never assess punitive damages in Canada, so it likely won't be all that much (she's also gonna have to pay a shit ton in legal fees). If she doesn't have the money to pay now, there are a number of alternatives. A successful plaintiff can seize property to cover it (so say the girl's parents bought her a nice set if diamond earings dude can can take them) or garnishment, any job I'm the future, he can get a portion of her wage until the debt is settled.

Of course, her parents, friends other family etc... can chose to pay for her. Tort law is meant to help the plaintiff recover their loss, not punish the defendant.

(A) The word is acquitted.

(B) There is no such thing as a finding of innocent.

(C) This never went to trial, so there was no verdict either way.

(D) He was never charged. He was investigated and showed the complaint to be bullshit. Now he wants to sue the lying POS who accused him, and for once we're seeing justice in a court of law.

1 upvotesTruthFromAnAsshole5 years ago

(B) There absolutely is. It's known as Actual Innocence.

1 upvotesGere1015 years ago

No, you're wrong.

At least in the US, you can only be found "not guilty" of a crime; a court will never rule "innocent" because failing to convict you means the prosecution wasn't able to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

If you understand statistical hypothesis testing, it's quite simple. The court presents a null hypothesis that you are guilty and then assesses the evidence to see if the results support the claim at a certain significance level. It's not as mathematically clear cut as that, but the important thing to understand is that the court will only prove or disprove that you are guilty; and that being "not guilty" != being "innocent."

Actual innocence is a state you can claim, but it can never be proven by a court.

2 upvotesTruthFromAnAsshole5 years ago

On appeal, you don't get presumption of innocence.

So if you appeal you basically have two avenues, you can argue that the trial judge erred in law at some point, or you can argue that you are actually innocent.

If you proceed with the latter and win your appeal, winning your appeal is known as a finding of actual innocence. Depending on jurisdiction of course.

So yes, you can be found innocent in a court of law.

I'm not a lawyer, and I'm not certain about this but:

It's the BC Court of Appeal, so it will be pretty much binding on all trial judges across Canada. Courts of Appeal in Canada won't be bound by it, but it will carry weight.

In countries where this issue of privilege has not yet been decided, (UK, AUS, NZ) it will be considered and may be adopted. There's probably already existing case law on this issue in the states, so the courts there will find that more relevant than in BC.

This legal debate isn't about rape at all. It's about whether ANY police report can be subpoenaed into evidence.

So it could have been a false charge of a burglary or a murder, not rape. Or a police report about one thing that affects a trial about a different thing.

I think Canada must already have the law to prosecute false rape accusations. But if the guy could not get to the police report, then he couldn't press his case against the bitch.
