Life Sentence characters ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB read Ë eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Christie Blatchford read Life Sentence A crime reporter revisits some of her biggest assignments and passes judgement on our judicial system and especially its judges When Christie Blatchford wandered into a Toronto courtroom in 1978 for the start of the first criminal trial she would cover as a newspaper reporter little did she know she was also at the start of a self imposed life se Christie Blatchford s most recent book is Life Sentence Stories From Four Decades of Court Reporting Or How I Fell Out of Love with the Canadian Justice System I think the title of this post is fair in its characterization of the title of the book The book is interesting but definitely disjointed Bltachford makes excellent points throughout the book about the unnecessary opaueness and exorbitant costs associated with the Canadian legal system Life Sentence comes across as three books in one Book 1 An Introduction to the Canadian Justice systemThe first four chapters cover what the book really purports to tell in the title In these chapters Blatchford gives the highlights of the vast majority of her career as a court reporter This section of the book comes across as a little too much inside baseball for someone who is not directly related to the justice system in Canada and especially Ontario It is mildly engaging to read the nature of the way in which judges are appointed compensated and regulated in the Canadian system However if this section had been the entirety of the book it would have been a disappointing read outside its narrow target audience Book 2 The BernardoHomolka case and the Tribulations of Stephen WilliamsThe book takes a turn for the interesting in the fourth chapter R v Bernardo In many respects it feels like this chapter is a book on the Paul Bernardo Karla Homolka case that Blatchford never got around to writing The chapter is nearly a third of Life Sentence It provides insight into Homolka s plea deal and the tremendous influence that Tim Danson the lawyer for the victims families had on the caseR v Bernardo continues with the mistreatment of Canadian writer Stephen Williams in relation to the case Williams wrote two books on the trial He raised the ire of the Canadian judicial system in his attempts to report on the trial He was charged with 97 criminal charges related to his reporting and faced a two year ordeal before the case was settled Williams eventually pleadguilty to a single count of breaching a court order by publishing the names of some of the sexual assault victims on his short lived experimental website that had only ever been viewed by police officers and a few reporters He was given a suspended sentence and three years probation and a criminal recordThe treatment of Williams at the hands of the Canadian justice system is a real eye openerBook 3 The Harm of Sexual Assault ClaimsBlatchford s third book in a book deals with the Jian Ghomeshi trial and the way the court system deals with sexual assault complaints It is at this point where Blatchford really hits her stride She points out the necessary adversarial nature of the court process In fact Jake Jensin who represented the first Ghomeshi complainant says police should spend some time telling alleged victims about the process that for instance the videoed interview will be provided to the defence that they will be challenged and must expect it that they should take their time and be as descriptive as possibleBlatchford goes on to outline why Ibelievewomen is not in itself valid grounds for automatically convicting those accused of sexual assault Blatchford gives a few examples of men who faced accusations of sexual assault who had their reputations severely impacted as well as having their careers destroyed or nearly destroyed These charges are especially troublesome when the accused are public figuresthe names of public figures whether athletes or parliamentarians or celebrities will emerge either because at a certain stage police release them when formal charges are laid it s the usual practice in both Canada and the UK to release names but wanted persons are sometimes identified too or because journalists will find out on their ownBlatchford outlines the cases of four men who were accused of inappropriate behaviour never faced formal charges for their crimes and the impact of these accusations on their lives Former VANOC chair John Furlong s case was the most detailed Former Liberal MPs Scott Andrews and Massimo Pacetti were accused of misconduct while members of the federal Liberal caucus There was no formal hearing held in their case No charges were field Neither were allowed to run as Liberals in 2015 The final case was that of Patrick Witt Witt was the starting uarterback for the Yale Bulldogs a Rhodes Scholarship finalist and is in his final year at Harvard Law Witt s ex girlfriend filed an informal complaint against him to Yale s University Wide Committee on Sexual Conduct Witt was not allowed to view the complaint against him or to reuest a finding of fact in the case The news of the complaint was anonymously leaked to the Rhodes Trust An anonymous tip also lead to a full time offer of employment Witt had received being rescindedThere are common themes in the Furlong Andrews Pacetti and Witt cases None of these men were ever charged with a crime None were given the ability to confront their accusers All suffered serious damage to their reputations and careers No one is held accountable SummationBlatchford s book is well written and will appeal to a variety of audiences The first part of the book is of interest to those in the legal community The appeal of the book widens when Blatchford deals with the Paul Bernardo Karla Homolka case Blatchford buried the led in my case as her treatment of the Jian Ghomeshi case and other murky cases of sexual misconduct is the most interesting part of the book It truly is a book that can appeal to a wide audience if the non legal types can make it through the first three chapters
