Ottawa mom, son plead guilty to incest
Witnessed by her daughter
OTTAWA - A judge handed a 53-year-old woman and her 35-year-old

sordid tryst, witnessed by her daughter and his sister at her
But the judge saved his comments for the woman, a scrawny figure
dressed in black with rust-coloured dyed hair who stood apart
from her son, a heavy-set man with a shaved head.
"I think your conduct speaks for itself, particularly as a
mother," Judge Paul Belanger said as he gave her two years
probation, twice as much as her son.
"I'm going to leave the opprobrium to your own conscience and

taken into care at 12 for abuse. He then suffered more abuse in
foster homes, court heard.
"Regardless of whether your children are 16, 26 or 36, they're

The pair was ordered to seek counselling for alcohol and
substance abuse and is forbidden from contacting each other or

of being close to her mom. Her dad never got his wish of dying

"It breaks my heart and it hurts more knowing my family will
never be the same," she said in a victim-impact statement. "I am
hoping that they will get the help they need. That is my wish
for them, to get the help they needed a long time ago."
