Justice Teen predator will go 103 months in the shade

A sexual predator from Lanaudière who lured no less than 68 teenage girls on the internet for 12 years by trying to “make pity” will now think in the shadows for the next 103 months.

“It’s a significant penalty. Among the aggravating factors, there is manipulation. He was trying to attract sympathy to hang the young girls, ”said Thursday the Crown prosecutor, Ariane Roy-Drouin, satisfied with the sentence.

“For this type of crime, with the actions, the period and the risk of recidivism above the average, we are talking about 7 to 11 years of imprisonment,” she said.

In the morning, Jean Guévremont-Morin heard the joint suggestion endorsed at the Joliette courthouse.

Last August, the 37-year-old man admitted to luring young girls, instigating sexual touching, showing his genitals, possessing and distributing child pornography.

According to the summary of the facts, it was rife between 2006 and 2018. On Skype, an audio and video calling software, the resident of Saint-Charles-Borromée had 619 conversations with six different profiles. Crimes were found in 97 of these cases.

In total, he interacted with 68 minors, proposed five meetings and made 23 suicide threats to convince his victims to give him naked pictures of them. He often sent pictures of his penis.

It was Skype which, in 2018, alerted the authorities to its shady activities.

Within a month, he had uploaded 10 files of pictures of girls aged 2 to 13 being assaulted. During a search, 41 other files of the same type were discovered in his computer.

His father too

Guévremont-Morin expressed “remorse and an openness to follow therapy,” in a letter he read Thursday.

By subtracting his preventive detention, he has six years and three months to serve.

Before their accusations, he and his father, Alain Guévremont, volunteered for the Sportifs de Joliette, in the Quebec Senior AAA Hockey League. The 70-year-old has pleaded guilty to possession of child porn. He is due to return to court at the end of the month.
