CALGARY – A man in Calgary, Alberta, was sentenced to 27 months in prison for sharing explicit pictures with an american teenager of 13 years of age.
Jasper McKinstry served only 14 months for charges of child luring on the internet and exchanging sexually explicit material with a minor, reported Saturday, “Calgary Sun”.
And for good reason, the Crown prosecutor Carolyn Ayre and the defence counsel Gloria Froese jointly proposed this penalty, with an additional 30 days for the breach of conditions.
This decision will allow the accused person to get treatment for sex offenders at the correctional Centre Calgary.
Froese has said his client welcomed the opportunity to receive a treatment, that McKinstry has confirmed before the judge.
“I’m rather looking forward to being able to participate in this program,” said McKinstry about the program Rocky Mountain to the provincial prison.
“Not only I can improve myself, but honestly, I don’t want to hurt people”, he added, not without confessing to having been sexually abused in his childhood.
