"Here, the child was a teenager, but her extra vulnerability came from the fact that she was an immigrant to Canada...she was in his power in every way." TORONTO - A man who sexually assaulted his teenaged niece from Fiji more than 100 times over a three-year period has had his sentence more than doubled by Ontario's top court. "This case presented the court with a variant of the pattern of conduct of adult abusers in a position of trust over children," the justices said in their ruling. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
