Pier-Olivier Broulet ,22, is a soldier with the Van Doos who are leaving for Afghanistan this month. Broulet attended a friend’s party and during the night had intercourse with his friend’s sister. At his trial for sexual assault Broulet’s lawyer argued that intercourse in this case was consensual. The Crown argued that the woman in question was so drunk that she could not have given informed consent.
Broulet was found guilty. The Crown argued for a jail term. The defense countered that Broulet would be far more valuable to his country in Afghanistan than sitting in a jail cell. What do you think? Should Broulet be discharged back to his regiment for deployment to Afghanistan? Or should he do jail time?
