OTTAWA (Reuters) - The Supreme Court of Canada on Friday upheld the sexual assault conviction of a Nova Scotia man for poking holes in his condoms before having consensual sex with his girlfriend in order to try to make her pregnant.So....lemme get this straight: Consensual sex that results in a pregnancy unintended by the woman == sexual assault, punishable with jail time.
We conclude that there was no consent in this case by reason of fraud... Mr Hutchinson is therefore guilty of sexual assault," Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin and Justice Thomas Cromwell wrote in arguments joined by two other justices. The other three judges came to a similar conclusion by a different legal route.
Hutchinson, who had been out on bail, will now have to serve an 18-month prison sentence.
The written statement of facts presented by the prosecution said that Hutchinson had wanted to get his girlfriend pregnant at the time, in 2006, in order to keep their deteriorating relationship going.
Consensual sex that results in a pregnancy not intended by the man != sexual assault and nets the accuser two decades of cash.
