Hugo Bernier Trial Delayed - Again

There is word in from Quebec that the judge trying the Hugo Bernier case has decided to move the trial from Sherbrooke to Montreal. Bernier was arrested in September 2002 for the murder of Julie Boisvenu. The twenty-seven-year-old's body was found in a ditch near Bromptonville, six days after she disappeared after leaving a nightclub in downtown Sherbrooke. Bernier was another of those repeat offenders who - surprise, surprise - was mistakenly granted early parole.

The case was originally scheduled to go to trial last fall, but was delayed until the spring of 2004. This current decision will further delay the proceedings for an additional six to eight months.

Julie Boisvenu's father, Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu - a man a greatly admire and consider to be a close ally - is expected to call a news conference next week protesting the delay of justice and calling for greater appreciation for victims' rights.

Conrad Brossard killed my aunt, Cecile Clement 5 years ago. Despite the many stories of reoffending murderers, the federal government continues to boast that there is only 1% recidivism on murder. Never mind that every single time that Brossard was released (or escaped), he either raped, murdered, or attempted to murder someone. In MY books - on MY calculator, that's 100% recidivism when it comes to THIS violent offender.
