Cape Breton decision overturned

The province’s Court of Appeal has overturned a Cape Breton’s man’s conviction on sex offences.

The justices ruled numerous technical problems with video link testimony by witnesses impaired the man’s right to a fair trial.

They overturned his conviction in May last year for sexual touching of his son who was 7 at the time.  The man’s name has not been released to protect the identity of his son.  The 43 year old man no longer lives in Cape Breton and is believed to have been paroled.
