  • Female privilege: woman hires hitman to kill husband, escapes jail by faking abuse

    Faking is a bit too strong, she put no effort into faking anything, she just made up a story about how her husband (whom she was trying to kill off) abused her and the judge bought it.
    Be sure to go to the link for all the details.

    In 2011 the Crown appealed the acquittal to the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal. But to its dismay, the higher court upheld the lower court’s decision, writing: “It is hard to imagine that, as a teacher with a steady income, support from family and friends, presumed police protection, a divorce in the works and with the last specific threat months before the ‘crime’, she would not have had other avenues of escape.”
    Yet the Appeal Court upheld the acquittal.
    There was one last hope for the Crown – an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada which, in January 2013, made a stunning reversal ruling that the defence of duress – the only defence Nicole used to justify hiring a hit man to kill her husband, did not apply.
    But then in yet another bizarre twist, instead of sending the case back to the Nova Scotia court for a re-trial, the Supreme Court ordered a stay of proceedings, determining that Nicole had suffered enough.
    Bottom line: Nicole Doucet can never be tried again for the crime.

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    Should be noted for those who won't read the article, that she never in fact managed to hire a hitman, two of the men she approached bolted with the money she gave them, and the third was an undercover cop who arrested her.

        That does not help her case Leonhard, if anything it shows the lengths she was willing to go to, to get him killed.

          People seem to forget that just as being made in the image of God makes women as valuable as men it also makes them likewise as accountable as men. Its just that wicked women can pull out the victim card just so they can appear innocent which is quite despicable.

            Well, you know, divorce is really traumatic
            "Some people feel guilty about their anxieties and regard them as a defect of faith but they are afflictions, not sins. Like all afflictions, they are, if we can so take them, our share in the passion of Christ." - That Guy Everyone Quotes
