Brutal ‘Ex-Gay’ Shock Therapist Sentenced to Five Years for Assault

aubrey_levin1Dr. Aubrey Levin, the monstrous 74-year-old Canadian “ex-gay” therapist (who administered electroshock treatments to white South African soldiers during the apartheid era as a way to “cure” them of homosexuality), has been sentenced to five years in prison for sexually assaulting male patients.

Levin (74) was sentenced in a Calgary court last Thursday, and was earlier struck off the roll of medical practitioners, the Beeld reported on Tuesday

His wife Erica was charged with defeating the ends of justice after she allegedly tried to bribe a juror in the case.

“Your patients came to you for help. Instead, you were responsible for creating more problems. This was a horrible violation of trust,” court of queen’s bench Justice Donna Shelley told Levin during sentencing.

Levin was found guilty on three of nine charges against him. His Canadian offences came to light in March 2010 when the original complainant showed two videos, taken on a spy camera, which showed Levin fondling his genitals.

Shelley said Levin deserved eight years in jail, but was given a reduced sentence because of his age and ill health.

    Reduced sentence because of his age and ill health???? HUH? He escaped justice. Lived free while his victims lived with his abuse for all these years. In fact he should get a longer, not shorter, sentence for what he did and hid for so many years. He is being rewarded for avoiding justice all these years. That is not justice.
