Kathleen Wynne’s Close Adviser, Convicted Child Pornographer Ben Levin To Be Sentenced Today

Benjamin Levin to be sentenced for child porn-related offences

A man who once was deputy education minister in Ontario and Manitoba should find out today how long he’ll spend behind bars after pleading guilty to three child pornography-related charges.

Benjamin Levin, 63, was originally charged with seven child porn-related offences.


I am betting House Arrest and “therapy” followed by Kathleen Wynne bestowing a special Order of Ontario on him.

    Time served!

    • That is a very good possibility.

      • Ottawa Eyes

        Maybe 500 hours of community service and he will volunteer to do it at a child care facility.

        • Wynne will put him in charge of early childhood education.

          • Exile1981

            He already was wasn’t he? He’ll be in charge of hands on teaching of sex ed to kids.

          • Observer

            He says he is an expert on early childhood education and child rearing.

            On another topic, most people only serve 1/6th of their sentence for “non-violent crimes” and if they behave well in jail only 1/3rd of their sentence for “violent crimes”.

            So I don’t know if that 3 year sentence will translate to 6 months or 12 months, but I suspect since he didn’t use a firearm or a knife it will probably be only 6 months of actual time in a minimum security facility, but it still should be in a federal institution because it was 2 years or more.

      Unfortunatly i suspect your right. He wont do time as its bad for the liberals if he does.

    Just love that iconic photo — our very own Mount Rushmore of depravity and stupidity.

    For sure, for sure, for sure it will make the…… 18th page on the Red Star.

    Forget about all those unimportant stories about perverts in the Liberal party, financial scandals, dirty politics and so on. The Liberals have redeemed themselves by passing the most important legislation in Ontario’s history. They have banned the breeding of killer whales in Ontario. And if you don’t think this is important then you must be homophobic. Although I hope this doesn’t effect the Toronto Star’s traditional annual rant about Marineland. We always know summer has started when they get upset about fish there.

    BREAKING: Former deputy education minister Benjamin Levin sentenced to three years on child porn-related charges.

    • Waffle

      Yeah, I just heard that — but how much time behind bars will he actually serve?

      • Exile1981

        They’ll keep him on ice till after the fall federal election.

    • Thanks posted.

  • WalterBannon

    He will be transferred to the ministry of Environmental Cultism & Energy Scams or some high paid crony position in a QUANGO or NGO.

    Expect musical chairs on the gravy train, and a sentence that is vapor.

  • moraywatson

    London Free Press reporting Levin sentenced to 3 years of jail time. Sentencing on three separate charges to be served consecutively.

  • Tom Forsythe

    The three year sentence is fine, but look at his conditions; he can still go to parks and swimming pools, as long as he is with someone who knows about his conviction, and that expires in five years. He will still be allowed to use the Internet (with some restrictions).

    He should have the full ten year ban on parks, etc, (section 161 of the Criminal Code) and no Internet at all while he is on probation. That is the norm for these kinds of offenses.

    The fairest judgement would be 15 minutes with a jury of peers – all fathers, and their only limitation would be no weapons and no fatality. He wouldn’t re-offend…
