Former Mounty facing serious prison time for torturing son

A former RCMP officer has apologized in court for being what he called a monster.

The 45 year old Mountie can’t be named to protect the identity of his son whom he tortured and starved in the basement of the family’s Ottawa area home. He delivered the apology at his sentencing hearing, telling the 15 year old boy he’s sorry for his cruel and barbaric behaviour. The judge reserved decision on the sentenced which could reach a maximum of 23 years.

Family members who were in court dismissed his show of remorse as crocodile tears.
