The laws of this country were written to be as clear as possible and leave little doubt as to their application. However, there are some laws that leave themselves open to interpretation. Determining guilt or innocence can be difficult in such situations. For an Ontario man facing sexual assault charges, a vague set of parameters may be the difference between conviction and freedom.
A 20-year old Burlington man was arrested and charged for sex crimes on August 15, 2016. The arrest was carried out by the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service. The accused is a civilian army cadet instructor at Canadian Forces Base Borden near Barrie, Ontario. In total, he is facing four charges of aggravated assault for failing to disclose his positive HIV status.
