A Toronto teen out on a house arrest bail for a torturous kidnapping and sex assault was freed again Monday after being hit with new charges for a violent, armed carjacking. Despite two serious sets of allegations almost exactly two years apart, the teen scored his freedom because of the COVID-19 pandemic’s profound effect in the jails and courts. Justice Lawrence Feldman released the teen on $6,000 bail once again to his parents, both of whom are on social assistance, citing other judges who have released alleged offenders during the pandemic.
