Let's hope Judge Phillips denies the monster's appeal.

I hope so too.
In it, Balison said, the assessing doctor deemed Walsh a low risk to re-offend sexually as long as “external controls” are in place.
Low risk with controls in place is a far cry from no risk.

I confess this case didn't ring a bell with me, so I looked it up...

"Child rapist gets 7 years" - https://www.castanet.net/news/Kelowna/1 ... ts-7-years
  • A child rapist described by a Kelowna judge as a “monster” will spend seven years behind bars after terrorizing a 10-year-old girl for more than a year.

    After pleading guilty in May 2015 to sexual interference of a person under 16 and making child pornography, 47-year-old Steven Walsh was sentenced Friday in Kelowna court.

    Walsh was arrested in November 2012. Police found over 100 pornographic videos and pictures of a child he knew.

    While the relationship he had with the victim is protected under a publication ban to protect the identity of the child, Walsh was in a position of trust.

    “The videos must be experienced to fully understand the full measure of the crushing depravity of it,” said Justice Mark Takahashi. “There are no words to describe the despair one felt for the child and the loathing to Mr. Walsh.”

    Walsh had applied to have his charges stayed, due to the trial taking too long. While it took 49 months, Takahashi attributed the majority of the delays to Walsh, who went through five different lawyers.
My question would be why did a person labeled by the judge as a "monster", get only 7 years in prison ?

Here's some more -

• 3 April 2017 (link blocked by Castanet) from inf0tel.ca "child pornographer wants out of jail pending appeal"
  • KELOWNA – A Kelowna man serving seven years for being “boyfriend and girlfriend” with a 12-year-old says the courts took too long, he didn’t mean to enter a guilty plea and the sentence imposed is too harsh.

    He wants charges thrown out and to be released from jail while he waits.

    Kelowna RCMP began investigating Steven Craig Walsh, 47, in May 2012 after employees at a local hotel told police a man and a young girl he said was his daughter were seen kissing in a hot tub.

    “One witness says she saw them acting like boyfriend and girlfriend,” Crown lawyer Dave Grabavac said on the first day of sentencing submissions in Kelowna Provincial Court, Dec. 5, 2016.

    Walsh was arrested at the hotel in November 2012 after the victim admitted to police that Walsh “got too close.”

    When police searched the hotel room they found a camera with pictures of the girl asleep naked next to a stuffed animal. Grabavac says over 120 images and video met the definition of child pornography.

    He pleaded guilty to and was convicted of sexual interference and making child pornography and sentenced to seven years in December 2016.
• 1 Jan 2021 (Link blocked by Castanet) from inf0tel.ca "Convicted Kelowna pedophile wins appeal to use the Internet"
  • A Kelowna man sentenced to seven years in jail for sexual interference of a young girl and making child pornography has won an appeal allowing him to use the Internet again.

    The three-judge panel at the B.C. Court of Appeal varied an earlier ruling that prohibited Internet use for Steven Craig Walsh for 20 years.

    After the Dec. 29 B.C. Court of Appeal ruling, Walsh will now be able to use the Internet on condition that he doesn't communicate with anyone under the age of 16 or access pornography.
    <snip>
    The judge in the original case dismissed a psychiatric report submitted to the court that said Walsh was considered a low risk to re-offend. The judge said Walsh had "no remorse," and not the "slightest hint of compassion."
Sounds like this guy really deserves all the consideration the court has given him in modifying the terms of his sentence. Sounds like he certainly has learned his lesson. NOT

I read recently that a country (don't recall which one) was going to go with surgical castration over chemical castration. That's worth considering and would send a real message out to perverts.
I'm posting this from Traditional lands of the British Empire & the current Lands of The Dominion of Canada.
I also give thanks for this ethos richness bestowed on us via British Colonialism.

Stand up to Anti-Semitism.

There is cure for sexual deviants but policies towards this twisted people are too soft.
The other thing, if the happen to have a family that will pay for a good lawyer (the likes of Greenspan,) their punishment , doesn't fit the crime.
I'm reminded of the sentence this month. The man that killed the 13 year old girl in Burnaby. At some point, the lawyer of the rapist killer; implied they were boyfriend girlfriend .
Then was.. the old....he needs a mental assessment!
Frankly, people like these deviants should be offered freedom, in exchange for a lobotomy.
Castration doesn't work because this twisted behaviour comes from the brain.
I'm glad the province, will prevent them from changing their names too.

Jean to say, there is NO cure for sexual deviants.

I’d rather see his conditions strengthen than loosen. If he even so much as touches a child, immediately back in prison.
This time general population, only way out is via a casket.

Child molesters & pedophiles is incurable so rot in prison.

Added: I have absolutely no mercy for anyone who preys upon the innocent/young.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.
