Provincial Advisory Council on the Status of Women - Stanley Broomfield Sentence
Linda Ross - Provincial Advisory Council on the Status of Women The case of a six year-old girl who was sexually molested in Port Saunders in 2008 has gotten a lot of attention this week. Back on Monday we heard from the girl’s grandfather. He was upset that the man who hurt his grandchild didn’t get a harsh enough sentence. Stanley Broomfield was convicted of sexual interference and was sentenced to three years in jail. He is allowed to serve that time in a Labrador jail because of his aboriginal heritage. The girl’s grandfather had hoped for six years federal time…in other words out of the province. Now the provincial advisory council on the status of women is also expressing concern. Linda Ross is the group’s president and CEO. She’s in the studio with me this morning.
