Ex-cop turned rapist stays in halfway house

Posted By: Shuyee Lee · 10/8/2013 5:23:00 PM

A former Montreal police officer who sexually assaulted several women will have to live at a halfway house for at least another six months.

The extra six months is on top of the six months Benoit Guay got for breaching one of the conditions of his release.

Guay pleaded guilty in 2007 to sexually assaulting eight young women. He was declared a long-term offender and released from prison in 2010 after serving two-thirds of his sentence.

But in September 2011, his parole was revoked because he failed to report an encounter with a young woman to his parole officer.

The last time around, Guay got into trouble again by not reporting that he joined an online dating site and went on a date with a woman.

Now parole board officials say they still have concerns about Guay who has since struck up a relationship with a woman who has a 10-year-old daughter.

They say in the latest parole decision that the longer stay is necessary to prevent him reoffending considering the risk he still represents.

Guay would attack his victims with a knife or a gun, one of them a girl celebrating her 15th birthday.

    Scumbag rapes 8 girls using a gun or knife and serves 2 years in jail. Breaches parole and gets 6 months in half way house. What a joke our judicial system is. In the States, he would have got at least 20 years in Federal prison.
    Damn it HE RAPED 8 GIRLS.

    Inmate justice is better than the death penalty, at least he would get back some pain for what he did. Although with the death penalty we don't have to waste 80,000 in tax dollars for this kind of waste of skin.
