Five and a half years for a serial rapist porn actor

Five and a half years for a serial rapist porn actor

UPGRADE DAY

The sentence of five and a half years in prison for a pornographic actor who notably sexually assaulted intoxicated women leaves a bitter taste for many of his victims.

“I completely understand your dissatisfaction with the sentence. We often hear it […] there will not be a sentence strong enough to replace everything you have gone through and what you will go through for the rest of your life,” said judge Kathlyn Gauthier to the four victims of Marc-André Moisan. 

The magistrate then endorsed a joint suggestion by the Crown and the defence, at the Saint-Jérôme courthouse. 

A “COVID Credit” of 35 days was deducted from his sentence since he was isolated in the penitentiary after an outbreak and did not have access to reintegration programs.

Last June, the trial of the Mirabellois was to start, but he cut short the proceedings by pleading guilty to four counts out of the twenties he was facing.

Crystal meth addict

The 33-year-old sexually assaulted three women, two of whom were addicted to crystal meth and were in no condition to consent. Then, he injured an ex-spouse by pushing her down the stairs and spraying her with cayenne pepper. 

The porn actor, better known by the alias Mam Steel, already has a heavy legal past. This sentence is in addition to the 24 months he received last April for having sexually assaulted another woman. 

Among other things, he was also sentenced to nine months in prison for assault in the context of domestic violence, in 2020. 

Three of his victims were present for sentencing at the Saint-Jérôme courthouse.

Thus, three of his victims, who confided in the Journal today anonymously because of a court order, are having trouble digesting the outcome of this “ harrowing ” judicial process.

“He pleaded guilty to just one charge, while there were eight in my case. I was presented with a fait accompli without a word to say. I find it ordinary. For me, all the leaders were important,” said one of the victims, aged 24.

Marked for life 

A 32-year-old victim feels that her “cry for help” launched at the justice system is ignored. 

“ We have been in the process for two years and it has been the worst years of my life. I come out of it 1000 times more destroyed,” she said.

These three women, who have all previously been in a relationship with Moisan, are constantly haunted by nightmares and have trouble sleeping despite the years that have passed. They also fear the day when he will regain his freedom.

Marc-André Moisan will be placed on the sex offenders register for life. 

What they said

“The victims testified at the preliminary inquiry and there are still major pitfalls that have emerged. His guilty plea is significant, in the sense that they are spared from testifying in what would have been a lengthy trial. ”

– Me Stéphanie Gilbert, Crown Attorney

“I am aware that by pleading guilty, you avoid a trial. But at this point, I would have preferred to go to the end to hope that he had a bigger sentence. »

“To the number of victims he had and over a period of several years, to finally be just five years old. It's pitiful and ridiculous. […] I feel like
I will never be safe again. ”

– 31-year-old victim

“I'm sorry for not having had the courage to put an end to all this by denouncing you, because you started again and you did much worse to others. For you, it's five and a half years of your life that you're wasting. But I've been trying to rebuild myself for about 14 years without success. »
