EST. 1977 M a n i t o b a R i d i n g F o r T h e D i s a b l e d A s s o c i a t i o n I n c . www. mrda. cc We See Ability Please Donate • 204.925.5905 Legals Tenders O TTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada has ordered a new trial in the case of two Edmonton men who made child pornography after videotaping two 14- year- old girls performing sex acts. Donny Barabash and Shane Rollison were acquitted at their 2012 trial of making child pornography because the judge accepted the so- called private- use exception was available to them as a defence. The Alberta Court of Appeal overturned the acquittal and convicted the men, but it was not a unanimous decision. One Appeal Court justice said the private- use exception was available because the videos were consensual and for private use. But the Supreme Court was unanimous in its ruling the private- use defence cannot be used if it is determined the girls were sexually exploited. The high court ruled the trial judge focused too much on the question of consent and not the broader issue of whether the girls were exploited. “ The trial judge was also required to holistically assess the nature and circumstances of the relationship to determine whether sexual activity was rendered unlawful,” wrote Justice Andromache Karakatsanis for the court. “ By failing to consider whether the underlying relationship between the complainants and the appellants was exploitative, the trial judge erred in law.” The saga of the two girls, who were 14 at the time, began when they ran away from a High Prairie, Alta., treatment centre and found their way to Edmonton. One of the girls had fallen into prostitution and they abused crack cocaine and marijuana. They went to stay with Barabash, then 60, and Rollison, then 41, who supplied them with drugs and a roof over their heads. The girls also performed explicit sex acts on video, which Barabash kept and never showed them. One of the girls was asked if she wanted to do what she did, according to the federal attorney general’s written submission. “ I wanted the drugs,” the girl replied. At the time, a 14- year- old could consent to sexual activity, but the law has since raised the age of consent to 16. The trial judge and the one Appeal Court judge supported an acquittal for the men on the basis the sex acts and the recording were “ ostensibly consensual,” and the pornography that was created was privately held. But the Supreme Court offered further clarification in a ruling that will guide how the two men are retried, saying “ Even if a young person consents to the sexual activity, it may nonetheless be unlawful in certain circumstances.” The high court ruling said another section of the Criminal Code makes it an offence to exploit youths up to age 17. The criteria includes if the young person is in a “ relationship of dependency” or if an adult “ invites, counsels or incites a young person” to engage in activity with a sexual purpose. Justice Minister Peter MacKay said he was reluctant to comment on the specifics of the case because it is still before the courts, but noted the government has tabled legislation aimed at deterring people who prey on children. “ What I can tell you is that in all circumstances where children are vulnerable, where there are — let’s call them extenuating circumstances that should be considered and should be before the court — we expect and we understand that the judges will take notice of that, and I think that those were factors in this case,” MacKay told reporters in Victoria. — The Canadian Press Retrial in case of teen- sex video High court rejects private- use defence By Mike Blanchfield SURREY, B. C. — The family of a British Columbia woman whose motto was “ money isn’t worth dying for” wept as a 28- year- old man was sentenced for manslaughter after blindsiding her with a rock to the head outside a neighbourhood ice arena. Provincial court heard Yosef Gopaul intended to snatch Julie Paskall’s purse in Surrey on Dec. 29, 2013, as she waited to pick up her 16- year- old son after he’d refereed at a minor hockey game. The 53- year- old woman died in hospital two days later. Gopaul was charged with seconddegree murder but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge Friday, when he was handed a combined 12- year prison sentence for her death and a robbery at a bus stop two weeks earlier. Details of Paskall’s death, which sparked terror in the community, were revealed in an agreed statement of facts. Paskall’s relatives then took turns tearfully describing the impact of her death. “ Mr. Gopaul, when you attacked my wife, you took away the thread that held our family together,” said Al Paskall. His daughter, Rhiannon, who has cerebral palsy, said her mother helped her learn to walk, talk and believe in herself despite her disability. “ My mom was truly my best friend in the entire world,” said the 29- year- old, the eldest of three children. “ I would give anything to have a cup of tea with her and play a game of Scrabble while listening to Fleetwood Mac.” A cousin and a sister- in- law both said the slight woman often lectured family members to just hand over their purse if they were ever held up. But court heard Paskall had no opportunity to submit when she was struck by Gopaul, who was “ desperate” for money. “ I’m sorry for the pain I caused,” Gopaul told court. “ I never thought in a million years the blood of someone would be on my hands,” he said. “ I did not know her, but what I assume is she was a great wife, mother and friend. I know you most probably hate me, but I just have to let you know how truly sorry I am.” Gopaul said he’ll be seeking rehabilitation in prison and pledged to earn his high school diploma. “ Maybe even somehow, who knows, I may be able to help kids who struggle with anger and aggression, maybe be a better person and stop the cycle of crime.” An agreed statement of facts states Gopaul did not intend to kill Paskall. “ When asked how hard he threw the rock at Mrs. Paskall, he said, ‘ Hard enough to knock her out,’ which is all he wanted to do,’ ” the statement reads. With the time Gopaul has already spent behind bars awaiting trial, he’ll serve about 10 ½ years. An autopsy showed Paskall died of cardiac arrhythmia after she was hit once and fell hard onto the pavement. She was vulnerable because she had a heart disease. A rock the size of a grapefruit was discovered near her body. DNA from Paskall and an unknown man was discovered on the rock. That DNA prompted a police operation that led to Gopaul, who confessed both crimes to an undercover officer. “ It was a huge event in the community, and people continue to feel the effects of the fear that was caused by Mr. Gopaul’s actions,” said Crown lawyer Wendy Stephen. Court heard Gopaul has 29 criminal convictions going back to age 16 and six of those were violent crimes. His lawyer said Gopaul was traumatized at age seven when his mother jumped from an 11th- storey window to escape a rape by three men in an Ottawa apartment building. He moved to Surrey from Ontario just eight weeks before attacking Paskall and was arrested in May last year. — The Canadian Press DARRYL DYCK / THE CANADIAN PRESS Al Paskall arrives at a Surrey courthouse with his daughter, Rhiannon, Friday.
