Graham James sentenced to two years in prison


Former hockey coach Graham James will serve two years in prison for sexual assault against former NHL star Theoren Fleury and his cousin, Todd Holt, Canadian Press reports. James pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the two men hundreds of times when they were junior hockey players.

Handing down her decision in a Winnipeg courtroom on Tuesday, Judge Catherine Carlson said: “The court expects there is no sentence it can impose that the victims, and indeed many members of the public, will find satisfactory.”

Many Canadians have expressed outrage with the decision, including Holt, who said in a statement “Graham James is laughing all the way back to the life he has always led, knowing that justice for him is but a blip on the radar.”
