Scott Stanley tells court he 'hates' himself for child luring

A former Scouts Canada leader told the court, "who I am hates who I've been and what I've done," during a speech at his sentencing hearing after admitting to luring four boys and repeatedly molesting them.

With a shaky voice, Scott Stanley spoke on Thursday afternoon in an Ottawa courtroom after his lawyer asked for a sentence of three years less a day, while the Crown asked for six to eight years of incarceration.

Stanley, 30, was a volunteer with Scouts Canada for five years, beginning in 2009. He is also a former City of Ottawa lifeguard and swim coach.

Stanley pleaded guilty in late June to 10 counts of sexual interference, three counts of luring and three counts of invitation to sexual touching. The incidents occurred when the boys were between 12 and 15 years old.  (more...)
