Grandfather of a molested child says a three year sentence for Stanley Broomfield isn't enough

Stanley broomfield- 2011,jpg.jpgStanley Broomfield The family of a child who was sexually molested in Port Saunders says the justice system has failed them miserably. The victim was six years old at the time of the assaults in 2008. She testified in court three times and a jury convicted Stanley Broomfield of sexual interference. Last week Justice William Goodridge sentenced Broomfield to a 3-year prison sentence to be served in Labrador because of his aboriginal heritage. The victim’s grandfather wanted six years to be served in a federal jail. Reporter Paul Pigott has been following the case through the courts and recently traveled to Port Saunders. He joins Cindy Wall from the CBC studios in Corner Brook.
