Ottawa: Scott Stanley, ex-Scouts leader, sentenced to 5 years for sex assaults

Scott Stanley, a former Scouts Canada leader, has been sentenced to five years less time served after pleading guilty to luring and repeatedly molesting four Ottawa-area boys.

In determining the sentence, Justice Heather Perkins-McVey noted that it was Stanley's first offence, that he pleaded guilty and said she believes he is remorseful and wants treatment, but she also noted there were four victims.

The four boys, who were involved in Scouts Canada, were "scarred" by Stanley's actions, Perkins-McVey said Wednesday, and "will carry these scars with them for the rest of their lives."​

Stanley will get credit for time already served in pre-custody and under house arrest, so his actual time in prison will be three years and 281 days.  (more...)
