Canadian colonel gets life for sex attacks, murders

In Uncategorized on October 22, 2010 at 7:54 am

A Canadian judge imposed two life jail sentences on a top air force colonel, branding him a “sick and dangerous man” for a spree of murders, sexual assaults and burglaries.


Colonel Russell Williams, who once piloted a plane for the British royal family, broke down and sobbed as the two consecutive life terms were announced after he admitted killing two young women and coldly videotaping their murders.


Police arrested Williams in February for the disappearance and death of 27-year-old Jessica Lloyd, who was last heard from in January.


He was later charged with the November 2009 murder of Marie-France Comeau, a female corporal under his command at the Trenton military base.

Williams was also charged with two home invasions in which women were confined and sexually assaulted, and 82 counts of burglary and attempted breaking-and-entering in the Ontario cities of Ottawa, Belleville and Tweed.


A stash of women’s undergarments taken by police from his Ottawa residence was linked to the burglaries near his home and job.


Hundreds of photographs and videos of the sexual assaults and murders were also found on his home computer.


Throughout the week, the court heard horrific evidence and Williams’s chilling confession to police of how he repeatedly raped Lloyd and Comeau over several hours before strangling one and taping the other’s mouth and nostrils closed to watch her suffocate.


Williams, 47, had commanded Canada’s busiest air force base, the 437 Squadron in Trenton, east of Toronto, for more than a year prior to his arrest.


He had only met Comeau once prior to her death. She was working as a flight attendant on a military flight. But as her boss, he knew her schedule and that she lived alone.


On the night of November 23, 2009, he left his office at the military base, broke into her home through a basement window and attacked her. They struggled. He beat her nearly unconscious with a flashlight, tied her up and covered all of the windows in the house.


She pleaded with him: “I don’t want to die. Leave me alone. I don’t want to die.”


Afterwards, Williams washed her bed sheets and drove directly to Ottawa for a meeting with military brass.


He would later send a signed letter of condolence on behalf of the Canadian Forces to Comeau’s father, a 45-year veteran of the military.


Williams took an interest in his second victim, Lloyd, after spotting her once on a treadmill through a window as he was driving by her house.


Over a 24-hour period, he kept her confined and took more than 900 lurid photographs of her while raping her.


Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert Scott described Williams as a “sick and dangerous man” as he handed down the most severe sentence available under Canadian law.


Williams will not be eligible for parole for 25 years.

“Russell Williams will forever be remembered as a sadosexual serial killer, (and)… Canada’s bright shining lie,” he said. “The depths of the depravity shown by Russell Williams have no equal.”

The disgraced colonel apologized for the pain and suffering he caused, for “violating people’s intimate privacy” and betraying his family, friends and military colleagues.

Most of the break-ins occurred at night, and at least once while he wore his military uniform.

“Your Honour, I stand before you ashamed of the crimes I’ve committed,” he said. “I deeply regret what I’ve done, and the harm I’ve caused with these despicable crimes.”

Outside the courtroom, prosecutor Lee Burgess described Williams as “one of the worst offenders in Canadian history.”

“As long as he dies in jail, I’m happy,” said Andy Lloyd, the brother of one of Williams’ victims.

Before overseeing the repatriation of dead soldiers from Afghanistan, Haiti relief flights and Arctic search and rescue from the Trenton military base, Williams was in charge of Canada’s secretive Camp Mirage in Dubai.

The married pilot also flew the jet used to ferry Canada’s prime minister as well as the British royal family on a visit.

“I guess we still don’t understand the why, and this is something that troubles Canadians at large as it troubles those who have known this individual,” said Chief of the Air Staff Lieutenant-General Andre Deschamps.

“How could we have known? What could we have done differently? I’m not sure we’ll ever get answers to that,” he said.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Canada’s military has been “very badly wounded and betrayed” by this “horrific series of events.”

French footballer Ribery charged in under-age sex probe

In Uncategorized on July 21, 2010 at 3:21 pm

France international footballers Frank Ribery and Karim Benzema were charged with having had sex with an under-age prostitute Tuesday, as magistrates cracked down on an alleged celebrity vice ring.


The indictments are the first stage of a formal judicial investigation that could lead to a trial and, if convicted, both players face up to three years in jail and a fine of 45,000 euros (58,000 dollars).


Ribery, who plays for German giants Bayern Munich, arrived at the offices of the investigating magistrates at the Palace of Justice in Paris in handcuffs, according to several witnesses, but he was freed without preconditions after the hearing.


Ribery’s lawyer Sophie Bottai expressed surprise at the charge.


“The only thing that’s new since the last time he was questioned is that the World Cup is over and he played badly,” she told reporters, confirming that her client’s 22-year-old brother-in-law had also been charged.

French footballer Franck Ribery, seen here arriving for questioning at a police station in Paris, was placed under formal judicial investigation Tuesday on allegations he had sex with an under-age prostitute, a judicial official told AFP

The counsel for Real Madrid striker Benzema was not immediately available for comment.


Ribery has never denied having paid for sex with the young woman at the centre of the scandal, 18-year-old blonde party girl Zahia Dehar, but his lawyer told reporters that he had had no idea in 2008 that she was under-age.


“There’s not a single element of physical proof,” she said. “This woman told them she was of age, was all made up, dressed up, appeared very switched on.”


The players appeared before investigating magistrate Andre Dando after having been detained by vice squad officers and questioned for six hours on a charge of having “solicited an under-age prostitute.”


The players were detained at the request of the magistrate, who is probing claims that a Champs Elysees nightclub gave clients access to minors working as call girls.


Ribery, 27, was a member of France’s ill-fated World Cup squad, which went out in the first round at this month’s tournament in South Africa. He did not score and his performance was seen as disappointing.


Benzema, 22, was not chosen for this year’s French team despite playing in much of the World Cup qualifying campaign.


Dehar is now 18 years and four months old. She has been questioned by police and gave a tell-all interview to the news and gossip weekly Paris Match after the scandal erupted.


She described selling sexual encounters to Ribery in 2009 and to Benzema in 2008, while she was underage, and with a third French player, 30-year-old Panathinaikos winger Sidney Govou, in March, when she was an adult.


Dehar has said the players did not know she was a minor. In France the general age of consent is 15 years, but in the case of prostitution a young person remains legally a minor until he or she reaches 18.


Secretary of state for urban policies, Fadela Amara, said the episode set a poor example for French youth.


“It is not a good image of a man to give to the youth of France,” Amara said in an interview with French news channel iTele. “I am sorry to see a man like Ribery find himself in such a terrible, catastrophic situation.”


Adult prostitution is in itself legal in France, but pimping, solicitation and running organised vice networks are outlawed.

The footballers became caught up in the investigation after detectives probing allegations of a vice ring bugged the Zaman Cafe, an expensive nightspot just off Paris’s most glamorous street, the Champs Elysees.

Four people — including the owner of the club, a waiter who worked there and a man suspected of pimping call girls to celebrities and sportsmen — have been placed under formal judicial investigation and could face trial.

The club itself has been closed down by an administrative order.
