Mokami Status of Women to Meet

A women’s group in Labrador is not happy about the light sentences being handed down to people charged with sexual offences.

The Mokami Status of Women Council in Happy Valley-Goose Bay is gathering tonight to discuss such cases.

Petrina Beales is the Executive Director of the council.

She says they will discuss the charges that are being handed out to sexual offenders by the Provincial Courts.

Any women who have experienced a sexual assault in the past and are left frustrated about the way the courts have sentenced the offenders are welcomed to attend.

Beales says they would like to develop a strategy that would see harsher sentences given to sexual offenders in this province.
