Ben Levin Convicted – and the Facts Are Very Ugly

Blogwrath was at the courthouse…

It was a long day at the court house – the trial of Prof. Benjamin Levin (a.k.a. Ben Levin) was about to resume at 10 in the morning, but was postponed for the afternoon. When everything started a few months ago, there was very little media interest. Today a crowd of reporters, journalists and concerned citizens waited for hours near the courtroom door. A large group of cameramen and photographers, braving the snow and the wind, flocked around the courthouse’s entrance for the chance to catch a glimpse of Levin.

At about 2 p.m. he showed up, accompanied by his lawyers – Clayton Ruby and his partner G. Chan. The hearing started half an hour later. As it was announced in advance, Ben Levin was to plead guilty to three of the charges, related to making of child pornography, possession of the same, and counselling an adult to commit sexual assault on a child.

    Doesn’t counselling a person to commit an indictable offense carry the same potential punishment as the crime itself? That’ always been my interpretation of the C.C.C.

    • If you’re a Liberal it means they give you a patronage job.

    • Alain

      In a normal world the answer is yes, but in a corrupt banana republic the answer is probably no.

  • William Guillaume

    Uncle Benny is protected under Premier Wynnebag’s recently enacted V.I.P law..he is a ‘Very Important Pederast’ and a Liberal Party member, He is Aunt Katy’s mentor and all around child grooming expert. He will walk free on April 13 simple b/c of these facts. Bet on it!

    • Exile1981

      Sadly I suspect your right.

      • And that is why I feel so dispirited.

        • Exile1981

          We can always hope that the judge does the right thing and sends him away for a long time.

    That picture should be the center piece of the fall election campaign against Turdeau.

    Vote or Trudeau he’s friends with pedophiles, lesbians and nutters.

    • Blacksmith

      “Turdeau”, HA I see what you did there…..

    • Yup, it’s the Liberal Party in a Nutshell.

    • Linda1000

      The PCs in Ottawa cannot be negative towards the LGBT crowd. That picture is from the TO gay pride parade a couple of years ago. There were lots of others of the happy group from that day also.

  • Ed

    I believe that’s the only known photo of Wynne with her mouth closed!

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      It’s not like she’s gagging for it.

  • Ottawa Eyes

    But are these details of all original 7 charges, or just the 3 he admitted to as part of a plea deal?

    If so, the fact he admitted to these disgusting and sordid details suggest the other 4 charges involved much more dispicable and degerate activities that will never become public.

    • Likely so.

    • Exile1981

      It’s just the 3

    • The evidence presented was related to the 3 counts that he pleaded guilty to – and the volume the prosecutors had was probably over 600 pages. There was probably much more that never made it to the trial.

  • simus1

    In some jurisdictions, a “guilty” plea bargain involves full and frank disclosure of all other criminal acts and good faith testifying against all other involved and charged associates. Failure to perform in any way can result in very severe enhancement of sentencing. Probably not applicable in Ontario when high level lefty bureaucrat miscreants who know where many the bodies are buried are involved.

    re Blogwrath article:
    Levins wife was in this?
    “His wife is not suitable as a supervisor, because he explicitly stated
    that she participated in the abuse of their children. “??

    ..or i read this wrong

    • Linda1000

      They seized a number of computers, flash drives from his house. How could she not have come across at least one file or picture unless she is a complete non-user of computers. Just saying – as his activities seemed to be with numerous contacts over a significant period of time.

      • mauser 98

        i guess so..(?)

        women are rarely into this stuff … hard to believe

        • Linda1000

          Levin expressed a few times to the undercover fake profile officers that he hoped to involve or engage his family members at some point in the future. Yuk. Begs the question, has he already done some thing with his daughters or had some “enlightening” discussions pertaining to his specialty of sex education with them already.

          • barryjr

            I strongly suspect that he did some things with his children but by pleading guilty he is hoping it won’t come to light.

          • mauser 98

            Yuk is right
            other charges not plead must have more nasty stuff

          • Exile1981

            He claimed to have had “contact” with all three of his daughters before they turned 12. What he said about hoping to have contact that way with his grandchildren if he could convince his daughters to let him indulge himself.

          • Linda1000

            Gives me the creeps. Should this guy be walking around in public? Is he going to snatch some kid out of a park one day or what?

          • I am ready to vomit.

          • Exile1981

            No idea, ask DBN – he has a psychology background and can possibly answer that better. I’ve read that certain types do get more violent as time progresses.

          • WalterBannon

            he should be on the dangerous offender list

          • TotallyPeeved

            Of course he molested his children. And any sibling’s children, and his cousins, and… It’s what they DO.

        • Frau Katze

          She might have known but been incapable of stopping him.

          • TotallyPeeved

            Why? No guns up there?

          • WalterBannon

            you mean 911 does not work on her phone?

        • Bataviawillem

          Karla Homolka.

    • In the chats he mentioned that he and his wife molested their daughters together. The prosecutors investigated the claim, but couldn’t find evidence, still they didn’t trust her and wanted her out of the circle of people who are expected to supervise Levin.

      • mauser 98

        whew..

  • Ron MacDonald

    Did Wynne write a letter on his behalf.

    • Levin was soliciting letters of recommendation – at the sentencing hearing we will probably hear who supported him.

  • Rosenmops

    I started to read it. Had to stop. To think this monster was a professor of education, and a minister of education.

    They should dismantle OISE and discard any and all policy decisions he had a hand in.

    Now I need to take a shower after reading about this disgusting pervert.
    Pass the brain bleach.

    • BillyHW

      The cardinal bishop of Toronto is going to make sure your children learn their sex lessons.

    • Linda1000

      My head hurts thinking about it all.

    • Frau Katze

      And he was so brazen. Had all this stuff on his computers and flash drives.

      My computer stuff would put the average person to sleep.

      • Well, it’s not like he doesn’t have friends in high places to protect him from the worst charges, so…

      • Rosenmops

        The only thing on my computer likely to get me into trouble is a few off colour picture, ahem, like this sort of thing:

  • Clink9

    This is some of the sickest stuff I’ve read. Imagine the cops that have to deal with this type of investigation on a daily basis. Whatever you think of the police lately, these guys have an awful job to do.

    • mauser 98

      many do not last
      Psychological damage ,many resign , infant pics and such

    • Linda1000

      I think the officers in this case should be commended for doing a really good job in gathering all the evidence and getting the case to trial. It must have taken hundreds of hours just to keep the investigation going online and through other channels. Then imagine all the politically correct waters they had to navigate once they had identified their high profile candidate.

  • Jay Currie

    Despicable little man.

    Interesting that there are that many cops on line. Certainly better use of their time than chasing basement Nazis.

    • Frau Katze

      I agree. How did he think he could away with it?

      • Exile1981

        Assumed as a liberal minister he was untouchable.

      • WalterBannon

        wait and see – he did get away with it

  • FactsWillOut

    We can expect crickets for the Ontario conservative party, and the CPC in general.
    I wonder who the victims are, and if the victims parents will be waiting to offer free ventilation services when he gets out?

  • BillyHW

    Don’t forget the Premier Wynne is herself a child abuser:

    http://henrymakow.com/2015/02/the-first-child-kathleen-wynne.html

    • mauser 98

      ” When Wynne’s oldest son, Chris, was
      eleven-years-old, his mother kicked his dad into the basement and
      moved her lesbian lover into his parent’s bedroom. ”

      …sheesh… and i thought i was whipped

      • Liberal

        Except her son Chris is a born-again gay pro-palestinian activist who now has created a web design company (though he has no web design skills) called Groundforce Digital that supposedly is getting a huge amount of business due to his mother.

        He has wiped out the direct records of his old blog Chris in Palestine which supposedly went well beyond anti-Israel, but there are only the quotes from his friends and no direct evidence of any anti-semitism with none of his postings available any longer.

        • He is messed up because of good old mummy.

        • Interesting.

        • Raymond Hietapakka

          Groundforce Digital…..Propaganda, Spin-doctoring and Knob-gobbling.

    • Maggat

      Thanks a lot for the link, damn near lost my dinner.

  • Uncle_Waspy

    Stand by yer man……..stand by yer man

    So what did the lovely Mrs. Levin know about hubby’s online activities? Why isn’t she being investigated?

    • FactsWillOut

      Yep.
      Has his PC and all emails and electronic communications been subpoenaed?
      Or is it just conversations with the undercover?
      My money is on Wynn doing some influence trading….

      • mauser 98

        amazing Ezra was able to get email records
        Wynne scorched earth team slacking off

    • The prosecutors said that they investigated her, but couldn’t find any evidence of her involvement.

  • Surele Surele

    looks so good on Wynn

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    ‘ One of the previous bail variations even allowed Mr. Levin to go to Halifax to visit his daughter without surety present.’

    That smells like special treatment, eh? No surprise!

    Good report, as usual, by BlogWrath.

    For the record, the Star’s Rosie Dimanno also gave an extensive report on the trial details, complete with a ‘Warning: Graphic Content’ label, on the inside front page of Wednesday’s paper.

    If only the Star had the balls to allow for online commenting though. Damn!

    http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2015/03/03/there-is-a-great-deal-for-ben-levin-to-be-shame-faced-about-dimanno.html

    • David Murrell

      All the major media have “closed comments”, to stifle the outrage over this.

  • FactsWillOut

    From commentor at Reason.com:

    “…The reason that there are so few disabled minority women lesbians is because the oppression multiplier ratchets up hatred for them to such an extent that it causes the cis-shitlords to go insane and run them over on sight.

    I mean, you might be able to resist running down a disabled minority. Or a lesbian. But a disabled, minority, lesbian woman? Unpossible!”

  • Iamnotweetoddit

    Stop it everyone, cant you see he is Wynnocent?

    • eMan14

      I like that term…Wynnocent.

  • andycanuck

    How often did he go to Cuba to visit his brother, the ambassador?

  • “A professor is not stupid by definition”. Now that I really would have to dispute.

    • Frau Katze

      I agree completely. They shouldn’t be stupid, but some are.

  • Hang ’em high.

  • David Murrell

    I put in a complaint about the Globe and Mail’s refusal to cover the final day of the Ben Levin conviction (the just published a sanitized, edited version of the CP wire story, just publishing one-sided comments from Ben Levin and Clayton Ruby. In reply I got a quick refusal-letter from Sylvia Stead, the Globe’s public letter.

    Anyone wanting a copy of both e-mails can e-mail me at dmurrell@unb.ca . It’s good reading. The complaint is being sent to the Ontario Press Council for a final ruling.

  • Petrilla

    For the last day or so I can’t vote up or down to comments, is anyone else experiencing this?
