Eric Tillman charged with sexual assault

http://www.thestar.com/sports/article/581672

This is just bizarre. This is the Eric Tillman that was GM of the Ottawa Renegades. I thought that this guy was pretty highly respected. I guess it is all just allegations at this point, but he has been charged by police.

Need to hear more details before drawing a conclusion. Sexual assault could mean a lot of things.

Being a Die-hard Riders fan and a Saskatchewan Ex-pat, I can say that Tillman was eminently respected in the community. This is a huge shocker. Huge.

Innocent until proven guilty. Weird guy though.

Does grabbing a woman's bottoms classify as sexual assault?

There is a very good reason that they call it sexual assault and not specify the sexual act. The victim does not need anyone talking about the sexual act committed (i.e., ****, molestation), especially for underact or very young children.

To be honest a sexual assault is bad regardless of what sexual act is committed. If the act is not wanted by the victim it doesn't matter.

Also, from what I have read so far the 16 year is not claiming it was consensual, as this is not a having sex with someone underage thing. But maybe we haven't heard everything yet.

Without premission, under the Canada Criminal Code, yes.

There are varying degrees, just like murder and assault and the like.

Age of consent is 16 in Canada (Recently changed from 14 to 16). Therefore, this case cannot be considered statutory **** because the girl is 16.

Correct, I forgot about the recent change...others were mentioning having sex with someone 16 and wanted to mention this is not about consensual sex but an assault.

Thanks
