Canadian Crime News, Atlantic: Sex Offences/Offenders

Codiac RCMP have laid two sexual offence charges against a pedophile ,Walter Maxwell Sharpe, 54, who was designated a long-term offender in November,2007.

Sharpe, was in custody for his appearance in Moncton provincial court yesterday. He's charged with committing a sexual assault against a girl under the age of 14 and also touching that same girl's breast for a sexual purpose. The incidents are alleged to have occurred between Dec. 31, 2004 and Oct. 25, 2006 and the charge was laid three weeks ago on Jan. 10.

Sharpe, who has 16 sexual offences on his criminal record, is currently under house arrest until November 2009, after being sentenced on Nov. 6 for other offences involving a young girl. During his sentencing hearing, the court heard Sharpe showed that victim naked photos of himself on his cellphone, exposed himself to her and on several occasions tickled her as an excuse to touch her genital area, over her clothing.

The defence and Crown also agreed Sharpe will be designated a long-term offender for the next 10 years. That means he will be under strict conditions, and if he violates them, can be sentenced to a maximum of 10 years in prison. Sharpe's name was added to the national sex offender registry and the judge banned him for life from being present at places where children are found, such as schools, public pools, parks and community centres.

Sick people like that should be in jail with. All the other people not on house arrest or in a safe part of jail. They should go threw every amount of pain possible think about what those children go threw everyday because of sick like that. I don't think it right at all and they should be punished for it. Why are they looking at sex offenders like what they did is okay. I think is they are making a big deal about drugs or driving and talking on your cell phone but yet they are letting people like this get away. The law needs to start focusing on the bigger problems in life and not these little mistakes that we do on a daily basis.

As I am a survivor of sexual abuse, I know exactly what it's like. You never get over it, you just have to learn to get through it. Believe me when I say, there will be suffering for the pedohiles. Canadian Laws should be strict. The pedohile has given us the life long sentence. Why don't they receive the same? My story is..... I went back to try to press charges against my stepfather however it was decided by Canadian Law that since it happened in the 70's and the nature of the sexual molestation, it would not go trial? I was in disbelief. I just read about another man facing sexual assault charges against children from the 60's?
I am saying this to everyone, it does NOT make a difference what the nature of the sexual assault is or what year it happened. It is all the same. We were all innocent children. Our society is changing so fast. The internet is like a trough for the pedophiles and the weak. If a pedohile cannot be re-habilitated, then why are they not given longer jail sentences?
Canada is such a wonderful country. Let's keep it that way by enforcing the laws!
