When people complain about white privilege, this is a clear example of why.
A Canadian man has been sentenced to two years in prison for sexually assaulting a girl and then filming it on her phone.Drayton Dwayne Preston, 20, of Calgary, was ordered on Tuesday to 26 months in prison for raping a 17-year-old girl, who cannot be identified due to a publication ban, as she was passed out in a bedroom.
Preston, who pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault, will also spend 20 years on the sex-offender registry list, reported CBC.
According to the agreed statement of fact, prepared jointly by the defense and prosecution, Preston and a group of friends - including Preston's girlfriend, the victim, and her boyfriend - were partying on the night of July 29, 2016 at the victim's house.
At the end of the night, the victim and her boyfriend, who were both drunk, went to an upstairs bedroom, had sex, and passed out.Early the next morning, Preston broke into the girl's bedroom by removing a window screen and raped the victim.She woke up in the middle of the rape but passed out again. When she woke up again, she saw Preston was on his knees at the side of the bed and so she pretended to be asleep.He then assaulted her twice more before leaving. After he left her room, the victim told a friend who stayed the night about what had happened.Later that night, the victim discovered Preston had stolen her phone, taken nude photos of her and recorded the assault.He posted the images and video to his Facebook account and deleted them from her phone.
According to CBC, the video shows Preston walk up to the victim's bed, 'remove the blanket and spread her legs, all while her boyfriend is asleep next to her'.He then is seen sexually assaulting her before taking photos of her genitals.
Prosecutor Pam McCluskey noted that a doctor, during a pre-sentence psychiatric evaluation, said Preston 'talks about feeling sorry for himself.'
Preston was on house arrest prior to the sentencing hearing. He breached the conditions of his arrest three times and failed to attend court twice. -(Mary Kekatos, Daily Mail)
