Eye on a Crazy Planet: Blogging on the Benjamin Levin Hearing from the Courthouse

Levin's defense lawyer, Clayton Ruby
Today was the opening day of what is scheduled to be a three-day preliminary hearing for Ben Levin who was charged with multiple counts of possession, distribution and creation of child pornography, as well as conspiring to commit sexual assault.

Levin is the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education professor who had been Kathleen Wynne's hand-chosen Deputy Minister while she was Minister of Education in the McGuinty government.
