Graham James’ sentencing appeal set for December 3

Convicted sexual abuser Graham James will get another day in court, only this time it’s to see if he’ll be sent to jail for a few more years.

James’ sentence appeal is set for December 3 in a Manitoba court as they’ll look to extend his punishment beyond the two years he was given back in March. Former NHLers Theo Fleury and Sheldon Kennedy were both abused by the former junior hockey coach but it was him preying on Fleury and his cousin Todd Holt that landed him in prison.

The Crown was aiming for a six-year sentence for James when he was sentenced in March, hoping the judge would ignore previous jail time James served. That didn’t happen and now Fleury and Holt want to see him put away longer.

If the appeal fails, James can apply for parole in November and could be out on statutory release in July.

    I would like to use this pig as a goalie with no gear and have chara shoot slappers at this pervert pig. I would castrate him and tie him to ants nest.

    Just toss him in jail and not in isolation, I’m sure all that and worse will happen

    Stripped naked, ankles tied to the bottom of the pipes, wrists to the top of the pipes and let all his victims go 5 hole on him. If he makes it an hour, he gets 20 yrs. If he doesn’t, so be it.

    No doubt this guy deserve all the punishment the law allow. But, you guys spewing your hatred are no better than he is.

    “and he could be out on statutory release in July” …

    Yeah, that’s quite the society we have here, eh ? It’s funny how we have no problem killing defenseless animals for our entertainment (Booth), yet we quiver like the “cowards we are” at the thought of doing “that” which ought to be done in cases like this ? Now I agree with Id4joey, in that it’s wrong to exact retribution with “torture and suffering”, as doing so only brings the entire process down to the same depraved level of the accused. Rather, a simple “quick & painless” bullet to the head is all that’s required in a situation like this … end of story, thank you very much. The “Hammer of Retribution” must only ever be used in obvious and extreme cases such as this. But when it is, it must be used swiftly. ruthlessly and without pity.

    Joey, wonder how you’d feel if it were your son? Liberal idiot.

      ducksk, truth be told, I don’t know how I would react towards the monster. One thing for certain, all my energy would be channeled towards helping my son/daughter overcome the trauma of a monster. What would you do? Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Signed neither liberal or conservative.

    He raped kids. Sandusky lover Joey!

      ducksk, be part of the solution as opposed to the problem. Resorting to name calling only demonstrates your inability to be objective andto have an intellectual conversation.

    He raped kids, and he deserves to rot in prison. Agreed. He’s a sick dude, and he screwed the life of more kids than we know about. Agreed! I stand by the likes of Fleury and Kennedy. Perhaps you should all put your energy into trying to make a difference as Fleury has been doing. Or maybe you can try showing half the class Fleury has shown. Same applies to Sandusky. I say stop the violence and the abuse. And it starts with YOU.

    Joey , u don’t get it do u! U think he’s healed with 2 years in can for raping young boys. My hatred? He will get his true justice now or In hell, where dirty pervert pigs like him go. U want me to what? Stand on the street corner and pass out flyer educating folks to stop taping kids? Go fxck urself. Don’t tell me what I should think and that u know the better way. Why don’t u write a letter to Sandusky and tell him u forgive him, meanwhile I hope he burns in hell. Hatred for child a users? Dam right and I will never apologize for it. Nor forgive. U live ur own way….

    I reject Ducksk’s belligerence and profanity outright, though I do agree with his message. And yet you can’t dismiss the wisdom of Id4joey’s words, which resonate with thought and consideration. So what to do then ? Turn the other cheek and accept ? Or take action and deal with “that” which is wrong ? For me personally, I feel that you needn’t look any further than nature itself in-order to find the answer. Anyone knows that a parent will defend their offspring to the death, be that a bird, a dog, a cow or a human. In fact, no greater “call to arms” could ever be heard in the natural world. And so how is it that “sick and depraved” individuals like this Graham or Sandusky are even still alive ? Well, I would submit that that’s owing solely to “misguided” human interference. And that’s an interference which flies directly in the face of retribution, that natural yet powerful mechanism which maintains balance and harmony throughout the entire living world.

    The bottom line is that James should be simply taken outside and shot in the head … end of story … and if his bearded defense lawyer complains, then he get’s it too …

    ducksk, oh! I get it alright. More than you will ever know. Pedophiles CANNOT be cured regardless of how much jail time or therapy you give him. I’ll say it again in case you missed it. Pedophiles CANNOT be cured regardless of how much jail time or therapy you give him. It is a sickness, a disease for which there is no cure but for castration. You’re correct though when you write “He will get his true justice”. The mere fact that you write “educating folks to stop taping kids” demonstrates your lack of knowledge about the subject of pedophiles. We’re not talking about environmental issue here where a person can change their habits for the betterment of a social issue. He is a sick man, as is Sandusky. Some wires were crossed in the womb. You write “Go fxck urself. Don’t tell me what I should thunk” and “write a letter to Sandusky and tell him u forgive him”. True you’re not telling me what to think, but you’re telling me what I have done. Forgive him! Really! ducksk! Is that all you have? Cursing and assumptions. You have the wisdom to know that I have forgiven them by reading posts. Take a few tips from Fleury. You’ll feel better about yourself.

    Real-world test subject for long-term space travel. Stick him in a spacecraft, shoot his ass out of the solar system and monitor to see how long he lasts. Can’t rape kids while cruising past Mars….
