The ex-spouse of businesswoman and influencer Elisabeth Rioux was sentenced this morning to six months in prison for assault and death threats in a context of domestic violence.
“A period of firm detention, we believe, sends a message to society: domestic violence is not tolerated and the courts will not hesitate to respond by imposing prison sentences,” said the Crown prosecutor. Me Fanny Dubois-Grondin, in the case of Bryan McCormick.

Recall that an agreed statement of facts was presented when the 28-year-old man pleaded guilty in December 2021. This therefore prevented Elisabeth Rioux from testifying at trial.
The 25-year-old mother was not present this morning at the hearing at the Saint-Jérôme courthouse.
Between 13 and 15 episodes of aggression occurred over a period of approximately one year. McCormick's behaviors began when the businesswoman was in her first trimester of pregnancy, and they continued until September 2020, when she filed a police report.
