PATHETIC Canadian “justice”: Newfoundland man who raped 11-year-old girl gets five years, will be out in under 2

StaffRebel Columnist

Christopher Ford Butt, from St. John’s in Newfoundland and Labrador, was given a slight tap on the wrist after he viciously vaginally and anally raped an 11-year-old girl so bad she couldn't walk.

According to an agreed statement of facts, between June and July of 2014 Butt lured the 11-year-old victim into his house where he would show her pornography, and would then sexually assault her vaginally and anally.

The assaults continued over a four week period with Butt using physical force and threats to make sure she wouldn't tell her parents. He told the victim he would “beat the living shit” out of her parents and burn their house down.

When the girl's mother discovered her injuries, she reported them to police, after which Butt was charged.

Global News reports that the 41-year-old Butt was described as a family friend and neighbour.

Butt pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault and one count of uttering threats. Justice William Goodridge in Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court sentenced Butt to five years behind bars and three years’ probation.

Goodridge accepted a joint submission from the Crown and defence for the 5 year sentence.

In his decision, Goodridge wrote, “Mr. Butt’s participation in prison programs while on remand custody and the apology he made in court, offer hope for successful rehabilitation. There is also the reality that Mr. Butt’s childhood was marred by his own experiences as a victim of child sexual abuse. This does not justify or excuse his criminal acts, but it does help in understanding possible contributing forces that are in play.”

Because Butt has been in custody since Aug. 1, 2014, he was given 1,194 days off his sentence for time served. Now, he will just serve one year and 38 weeks behind bars.

SOUND OFF in the comments: do you think this sentence is a complete joke?

Kind of strange that Justin Trudeau’s best friends last name is Butts. Weird.

There is only one effective and appropriate way to deal with child molesters – Capital Punishment!
State sanctioned execution! A public hanging would send a proper message…

Another thing i will enjoy if our society breaks, we can dispense real justice for once.

To all the delicate commies aghast at the suggestion of killing someone for justice, consider that the severity of punishment for a crime reflects how seriously we take a crime. A five year sentence for multiple rapes shows that we, as a society, do not take rape seriously. A woman is severely affected for life. In the bad old, homophobic, corporal punishment allowing, Lord’s prayer in public school days, we used to hang rapists. Now we don’t. Progress?

Forget about free room, board, and an Clifford Olsen style porn stash for life. Back to basics please.

A few dozen lashes for each count of sexual assault followed by a good ol’ fashioned Canadian hangin.

All Child Molesters, including the Muslim variety, should be publicly Flogged and Castrated.

Living proof we no longer have a justice system.

We have a legal system.

And we have unaccountable judges who conspire to make it stay that way.

I know what I would like to do to the judge.

I suspect the family would be more than happy to help.

And then – on to the perp – it would be true “justice”

Maurice – thank you for expanding on my comment. I thought it was a given, but you’re right, I should have said the cult and those in our system who collaborate with the evil doers. There is definitely not a political solution to the problems in this world. I’m waiting on the return of Jesus to judge those who conspire with evil and madness. I don’t believe that we are very far away from the end now. The world stage is being set.

Deborah, the “cult of evil doers” as you say, doesn’t start and end with the Syrian so-called “refugees”. It permeates the political parties (most notably the Liberals and NDP), law societies, the legal system from the police to the Supreme Court, Government bureaucrats, big Trade Unions, MSM, University professors and their indoctrinated snow flake students, SJW, anthropogenic climate change alarmists, and, radical feminists who excuse Islamic subjugation of women in the name of cultural diversity. It isn’t just the perpetrators of the crime that are “evil doers” but everyone who is a collaborator in perpetuating a culture that gives those perpetrators freedom to flourish. They are every bit as guilty, and one day soon they will have to stand before God, as will we all. Hopefully, this will happen soon, as I don’t believe there is a political solution to the problem of evil.

This is the worst judgement, because it sets precedent for all those rape cases that have been, and will be perpetrated against our girls and women, by the rapefugee gangs. The cult of evil doers who are in, and are coming to Canada, will get a light tap on their perverted wrists. The girls will stop reporting the crimes because the legal system will scold them and blame them for the crimes. It’s the liberal way, to blame the victims!
Precedent – In common-law legal systems, a precedent, or authority, is a principle or rule established in a previous legal case that is either binding on or persuasive for a court or other tribunal when deciding subsequent cases with similar issues or facts.

“offer hope for successful rehabilitation”? These judges are absolutely crazy! What next, cure homosexuality? You can’t cure a pedophile, it’s not possible. When he rapes again, it better be the judges grand daughter or someone he cares about. A bunch of sick perverts in our (non) Justice system.

Five years in addition to timed served would have been a good start. He will always be a sex predator and a registered sexual offender. There is something wrong with him, and the longer he would be in prison, the longer he would not be a risk to society,

When he gets out, he will always be looking over his shoulder. Probably friendless. As a child molester, his days in prison may very well be numbered as “short eyes” don’t do well in general population.

But of course, the bad taste political joke: This Butt raped a child, Gerald Butts rapes Canada.

Bill Elder… Whatever happened to 15 yrs to life and the lash followed by social disassociation as a deterrent.

Or just nail their nuts to a stump and light it on fire.

All this pedophile crime explosion could be solved with existing law and a bit of true progressive innovation – when pedophiles and rapists are convicted, they undergo involuntary chemical castration upon pardon or release, one of the conditions of release would be to agree to voluntarily continue chemical castration treatments – to miss a treatment or drop out of the program means reincarceration for n indefinate period until the chemical treatments are continued.

It is proven that chemical castration (no irreversible physical damage to the patient) is effective in reducing and suppressing deviant sexual behavior with no negative side affects – it should be an integral part of rehab for sexual offenders

Christopher Ford Butt, from St. John’s in Newfoundland and Labrador must live close to water and could easily be fitted with concrete shoes.

He didn’t do it once, he did it multiple times, using threats and intimidation to control her. How could that monster be allowed out? Who will be his next victim.

Maybe they plan to castrate him so he won’t be a threat? Probably not.

Here’s the headline………. Canadas liberal judicial system hates law abiding citizens and will unleash criminals to terrorize it’s population.

Who in their right mind could ever accept this as justice?
Goodrich thinks because Butt was cooperative in the prison programs, it warrants a lesser prison sentence.
Goodridge needs to spend some time in the same cell as Butt.
