'Vile' sex acts by ex-cop provoked shame, teen testifies

A 17-year-old girl testified Wednesday she felt “shame” after a former police officer asked for oral sex in return for drugs four years ago, when she was only 13.

STRATFORD— A 17-year-old girl testified Wednesday she felt “shame” after a former police officer asked for oral sex in return for drugs four years ago, when she was only 13 - writes lfpress.com

But that was only one of the unwanted sexual encounters she alleged took place between herself and a man in his early 50s in the weeks leading up to, and following, her Grade 8 graduation. The girl, who cannot be identified due to a publication ban, was the latest witness to take the stand in a Stratford courtroom as a hearing for John Paul Stone, a 56-year-old Listowel resident who spent five years as an OPP officer in the late 1980s, neared the halfway point.

The two-week hearing, which began last Thursday afternoon, will determine the severity of the sentence handed down to Stone, who pleaded guilty to two sex charges and two drug-trafficking charges last week just as a month-long trial was set to begin.

On Wednesday, the girl testified she first met Stone through her best friend during the spring of 2014. They left school one afternoon and went to meet Stone, along with a few other people.

“At first, I didn’t understand why she was going there,” she said.

That’s when she was first introduced to methamphetamine. After learning the girl hadn’t tried the drug before, Stone called her over, she alleged.

“(He) had me sit on his lap and he held the pipe for me,” she said.

The drug made her throw up about half an hour later while negative effects— such as being easily irritated, angry, and just wanting to sleep— lasted “for about three days,” she testified.

She also alleged that during other drug-related encounters set up through Facebook, “he groped me” and asked for oral sex.

Assistant provincial Crown attorney Noelle Brady asked the witness how that made her feel.

“I thought that was vile and disgusting to offer something like that to underage women,” she said.

She was also upset about another time she smoked meth with Stone one-on-one inside a shed on his property. The girl claimed she went to leave when Stone grabbed her, pulled down her leggings and performed a sex act on her.

After several seconds of silence, Brady asked her how the sex act made her feel: “Like I shouldn’t have even been there.”

She alleged Stone gave her free drugs on several occasions, including the shed incident.

Brady, though, didn’t have time to finish all of her questions and will continue Thursday, followed with cross-examination by Stone’s lawyer.

The U.S. and President Donald Trump has slapped a 15 per cent tariff on all steel and aluminum it receives from Canada, and if that rises to 25 per cent as has been threatened, it will cost more for the city to build its bridges and buildings with steel from the U.S. “We are trying to estimate a worst-case scenario,” said city treasurer Anna Lisa Barbon. “If there is a significant tariff increase, what impact would it have?” While the tariff is on steel sh...
