Former Alberta MLA Sentenced to 3 years

Former MLA Don MacIntyre appeared in court today after being charged with one count of sexual interference and one count sexual assault. He pleaded guilty to the first charge and the second charge was to be withdrawn. The victim was 10 years old when MacIntryre was touching her sexually and telling her “god said he was okay with the touching.” In court MacIntryre asked for forgiveness, claiming it was “Satan’s plan to destroy (the victim’s) faith.” Mackintyre’s defense lawyer Ian McKay asked the court to reduce his sentence to 2 years, noting the publicity of the case and that he has lost all support from his church community. as it stands  he Macintyre will be getting between 3-3.5 years however Queen’s Bench Justice Debbie Yungwirth is to rule on the sentence later Friday.
