IMMEDIATE RELEASE – PRESS CONFERENCE – THEO FLEURY
WHERE: Hyatt Regency
700 Centre Street SE
WHEN: December 7th, 2011
Calgary, Alberta CANADA – Today convicted pedophile Graham James pled guilty to in a Winnipeg courtroom to sexually assaulting Theo Fleury as an adolescent.
“Graham James pled guilty years ago, and then he was granted a pardon, after he was found in Mexico and brought back to Canada on these charges he was given bail, then plea bargained for 14 months – this is what the mighty Canadian justice system allowed a previously convicted child rapist to do.
There’s only one answer = he’s guilty.
And when he gets out of prison he will do it again, and again, and again.
I believe what people show me – he showed me he was and is a rapist. There is no changing a monster like that.
Defense lawyers can package up their clients in fancy words and lengthy legal maneuvers, but how they sleep at night knowing they are aiding and abetting a rapist is beyond me.
There is no more sugar coating this. This guilty plea is an international call to action – these people, the rapists and their defenders alike, need to take notice that victims, survivors, and victors of sexual assault will stand together and we are going to change this world.
This is a call to action on behalf of the 8 million survivors of childhood rape, and a call to all Canadians – this epidemic has to stop and stop now” says Theo Fleury.
