Canadian guilty of sexual assault after piercing condoms

By Randall Palmer OTTAWA (Reuters) – The Supreme Court of Canada on Friday upheld the sexual assault conviction of a Nova Scotia man for poking holes in his condoms before having consensual sex with his girlfriend in order to try to make her pregnant. Craig Jaret Hutchinson’s girlfriend, whose name the court has protected, said she had agreed to sex as long as it was with a condom so that she would not get pregnant. The country’s top court held 7-0 that while she may have consented to sex, she had not consented to unprotected sex, and that by poking holes in the condoms first, he had committed sexual assault. “We conclude that there was no consent in this case by reason of fraud… Mr Hutchinson is therefore guilty of sexual assault,” Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin and Justice Thomas Cromwell wrote in arguments joined by two other justices.
