    Ottawa, judge refuses to impose mandatory sentence

    An Ontario Superior Court judge has refused to impose a mandatory three-year sentence on a man caught with a loaded handgun...

    Instead, she sentenced the defendant, Leroy Smickle, to a year of house arrest. Judge Molloy concluded that Mr. Smickle, a 30-year-old Toronto man with no criminal record, had merely been showing off by striking a “cool” pose over the Internet when police happened to burst into an apartment on March 9, 2009, in search of another man...

    When police broke down the apartment door, Mr. Smickle was reclining on a sofa operating a webcam. He had the gun in one hand and his laptop computer in the other...

    Look at all the crazy ways they can put the words together to create 7 charges for the same victimless crime.

    I'm glad I'm outta there.
