Found guilty of gang rape of a minor under 16 years old on February 9, former Drummondville Voltigeurs player Noah Corson is appealing his verdict.

The information was confirmed by the criminal and penal prosecutor, Me Marc-André Roy. It’s his right. He had 30 days to exercise it, which he did, he said in an interview with Radio-Canada Estrie.

As we speak, the sentence has not yet been handed down. The appeal concerns the verdict. What [Noah Corson] wants is either to get a new trial or to get an acquittal. Regarding the sentence, the file was postponed until May, but it will not be pronounced on that date, he said.

The trial of Noah Corson took place last November at the Drummondville courthouse. The identity of the victim is protected by a publication ban.

The acts alleged against the man, who was 18 years old at the time, occurred in the fall of 2016 at the residence of the victim, who was then 15 years old.< /p>LoadingChina calls Gaza war entering 6th month a 'shame'

Recall that the judge at the trial concluded that Noah Corson had not taken all reasonable measures to ensure that the young girl was at least under 16 years of age, which is the legal age of consent in such circumstances.

The Ministry The public and the defense agreed on the fact that Noah Corson had taken part in a group sexual activity which involved two other hockey players in the residence of the alleged victim. However, the debate had focused more on the consent or not of the complainant as well as on the checks carried out by Noah Corson to find out her age.

Remember that the legal age of consent for group sexual activity is 16 years old. Even though Noah Corson had assured the court that he was convinced that the victim was at least 18 years old, the prosecution had affirmed for its part that the young man had shown recklessness or recklessness. #x27;willful blindness.
