Convicted TTC officers deserve jail time, says Crown

  Convicted TTC officers deserve jail time, says Crown The Crown is seeking jail time for three former TTC enforcement officers convicted of writing fraudulent tickets to homeless people as part of a scheme to skip out on work. At an Ontario Court of Justice hearing at the College Park courthouse Tuesday, Crown Attorney Derek Ishak asked the judge to sentence the three men to time behind bars for their “repeated, flagrant, and knowing breach of trust.”He argued jail time was necessary to send a message to the public and other similar officers that the former transit cops’ behaviour wouldn’t be tolerated. He said TTC officers were akin to police and therefore their violation of public trust was particularly serious.

The student — who was 21 years of age at the time and in her third year at UBC — and Shufelt agreed to get together that evening and spent some time drinking at a bar along with a woman who was a friend of the student and a former girlfriend of Shufelt.

Afterwards, the three friends went to the fraternity house on campus, where they played a drinking game, consuming more alcohol. The victim, who was intoxicated, decided she wanted to stay the night at the fraternity house and got permission from another male friend to stay in his room with him.

She went up to the male student’s room, took off her pants and got into the bed, leaving her shirt and underwear on.

She texted her female friend downstairs that she was staying the night and then fell asleep. Meanwhile, Shufelt remained downstairs and asked his former girlfriend where the student had gone.

A Tipperary man who sexually assaulted his friend as she lay asleep beside him has been jailed for three years after a judge said it would “send out the wrong signal” to impose a non-custodial sentence. The court heard he sexually assaulted the woman, a long- term friend, in her bed in the

When he found out she was in the upstairs room, Shufelt entered the bedroom and got permission from the victim’s other male friend to sleep in the bed.

The victim, who didn’t know Shufelt had climbed into the bed with her and her other male friend, woke later in the night to a pain in her vagina, realizing eventually she’d been penetrated from behind, non-consensually, by Shufelt.

She started yelling at Shufelt that he had to go and the accused left the room.

The victim later confronted Shufelt, who told her he didn’t remember what had happened and that he had not wanted to hurt her.

She was taken to the hospital for an examination and later reported the attack to the RCMP. Charges were laid in August 2015.

“This was a grave offence with a devastating impact on the victim, for which Mr. Shufelt bears a very high level of moral culpability,” Crown counsel Jennifer Dyck said in sentencing submissions Monday. “He preyed upon a sleeping woman who was defenceless.”

A 28-year-old man will serve jail time for sexually assaulting a female student at a University of British Columbia fraternity house two years ago. The victim — who can't be named because of a publication ban — was 21 at the time and a third-year UBC student . She was friends with Shufelt

Mathew Aaron Shufelt, 28, has been sentenced to 21 months jail time plus 18 months probation for sexually assaulting a female student in a fraternity house at UBC . Crown counsel Jennifer Dyck had sought a sentence of two years jail time plus 18 months probation

In addition to the jail time, Dyck called for 18 months probation, including a condition that Shufelt stay away from the victim.

In a victim impact statement read out in court, the female student told B.C. Supreme Court Justice Michael Tammen that she could not put into words the fear she felt as she was being attacked.

She said that as Shufelt continued to rape her, she was “not fully aware of who he was and what was happening.”

The emoti0nal impact was such that she was forced to drop almost all of her classes and had to study hard to make up for the time off. She initially blamed herself for the attack, developed an obsessive-compulsive disorder and struggled with trust issues.

Kevin Westell, a lawyer for Shufelt, called for a sentence of 18 months jail and 18 months probation for his client, who has no prior criminal record and has been employed as a civil engineer with a large construction company.

He called it a “tragic” incident and added he didn’t wish to minimize how horrible it had been for the victim.

Westell said his client understood the pain and anguish and trauma he’d caused and wished to extend an apology to the victim.

The judge said he would impose sentence Thursday.
