"I think if you commit a crime, you should be held accountable for that," she said.

"By allowing him to go on with his life normally, finishing up his semester at university, it sends the wrong message to victims of sexual violence," Casswell said.

Very upset

Connor's father, Chris Neurauter, says his son did not receive any special treatment from the judge. He says the fallout from the sentence has left his son feeling distraught.

"He's very upset. He's trying to deal with it and work through it. He's frustrated that he's missing school," said Neurauter.

While rejecting claims his son received a break from the judge, Neurauter says his son still has to serve his jail sentence. He'll be on probation for two years and will be added to the country's sex offender registry for the next 10 years.

"You still gotta do your sentence. I mean, the judge's hands are tied … that's the best he could do, with part of the plea bargain, perhaps, is accommodate his education," Neurauter said.

Delays to accommodate hockey and school

The victim's mother says Neurauter was given special treatment by the courts since the charges were laid in July 2016.

She says several adjournments and delays were granted to accommodate Neurauter's hockey and school schedules.

"I'm the only person who went to court every time there was a court date, even if it was just to set a court date. I was there," she said.

"I said this is because of you, because of you standing up," she said, choking back tears.
