Malcolm Watson, a teacher at a Buffalo private school was caught with a 15 year old student in a mall parking lot. The teacher was convicted for sexual abuse on a minor. Fairly typical, if horrifying, so far.
However in this case, the instructor was not sentenced to jail, he was exiled instead. You see he lives in Canada with his Canadian wife and 3 children and now will not be allowed in the country for 3 years except to visit his probation officer. If the predator did not take this sentence he was facing a year in jail in Buffalo.
I am amazed that the judge made this offer and that this is even an alternative. The man in my opinion should serve his time and then be denied entry for life into the United States.
The fun part is that he is not a Canadian citizen, and Canada does not have to let a convicted sex offender live in their country. He may be forced to leave there.
What are your thoughts on this matter?
