Chatham Head,Miramichi, New Brunswick, Sex Offence charges:child molestation,sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching

September 23rd, 2009

The Miramichi Leader, Miramichi, New Brunswick

MIRAMICHI - A provincial court judge must decide whether brothers Rodney and Darren Dawson of Chatham Head are fit to stand trial.

The two men, Darren, 33 and Rodney, 34 are accused of molesting a child under the age of 14 on Aug. 28, 2008 at Strawberry Marsh.

They are charged with sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching - both indictable offenses that carry a maximum of 10 years in prison.

Judge Denis Lordon approved a request to have the two men go for a psychiatric evaluation in May after defence lawyers, Tom Prince for Darren and Melanie MacAuley for Rodney indicated their clients may not be mentally fit to stand trial.

The brothers will return for a hearing Nov. 24 at 1:30 p.m. to decide if either or both of the men are mentally fit to stand trial.

i feel that both brothers should get 10 years in prison its like i always say u do the crime you do the time and i feel that even a sycreatrick treatment or tests have nothing to do with this casei beleve they deserve 10 years in priosn i beleve that the people of miramichi would agree bye me saying that if it was annyone of us that did this crime we would most likely be faceing 10 years in prison so y shuold they be anny diffrent

You are only saying that cause you dont like them. Give it up. I dont believe that they could ever do anything like that. I have known them for a very long time, and nither of them would ever do anything like that. Its a bunch of bs. People should just leave them alone instead of picking on them.

Judge Lorden is too soft on crime. Keep these two in prison for a long time.

May not be mentally fit, they have the mentality to find their way around the miramichi, to memorize the songs they howl on karoke nights. They are a danger to the public, especially to the kids. Lock them up where they can't hurt anyone.

Wow Bettysav and JKumar lets get something straight I will tell you I know they are guilty. Caught red handed and if someone touch your child how would you react? I know these two guys really good two and I also know the facts. But this is not the place to discuss it. SO WE WILL LETS THE COURTS WORK IT OUT AND THEN SEE WHAT HAPPENS..

I used to live in Chatham Head and know the Dawson family well. Everyone around knows of the inbreeding in this particular family. No wonder they are mentally challenged. The sexual abuse in this family was ignored time and time again. I believe blame lies with the Childrens Aid Society who left the kids (including a girl) to face this abuse alone. The boys deserve their time in jail, but put mom and dad right along side of them.

People from New Brunswick are the very embodiment of white trash! I'd say that about 25% of the population there suffers from the effects of inbreeding. New Brunswick is Canada's answer to Texas.

It seems to me many ppl know so much about this family and have a lot to say about CAS not being involved.
How many of you stepped up to report this to the CAS,How presistent were you at reporting it, or did you just throw your hands in the air and say forget it.
We are all a product of our upbringing.
From what some say, this is a taught behaviour.
It sadens me that When abuse goes on and on for a long time (and I am refering to the boys)When a comunity is aware of it yet does nothing, then we are all to blame.
If there was reports and nothing got done the community should have bandend together and ensured these boys had a decent chance.
Yes the boys if they actually commited a crime should have some sort of punishment. Whether it be psyciatric facility or a prison.
Leave it to the Judge and give it to God.

why should they get off with the crime that theyare being charged with .. because tey are slower then others they understand right from wrong and should be punished fr what they did i don't think that they should get 10 years but they should be punished

to judge a whole province for the actions of a few is alittle ignorant. New Brunswick has a lot less crime than any other province. including less rape, child abuse, murder etc.. so clean out your own closet before you judge others for what they wear

If you knew so much at the time, why didn't you report it to the police. Law Enforcement arrests people who are involved with this sexual behaviour.

I do not believe your comment. There is a lot more going on that is not reported and because people do not want to get involved.
