MANDEL: Sex assault victim fined $2,000 for violating pub ban on her own name

DM

Call it twisted justice. The Waterloo-area victim just wanted to share with her supporters the transcript of the judge’s reasons for finding her assailant guilty of sexually assaulting her. But now she’s the one in trouble with the law. The unredacted transcript contained her name, which was under a court-order publication ban. When the convicted offender got wind of what she’d done, he complained to police and they actually charged her with violating the pub ban. It was his sweet revenge — and the judicial system was his enabler.
