The court found the man accused of sexually assaulting a kidnapped teen boy, who was chained up in a remote Nova Scotia cabin, guilty in a verdict announced on Friday. Moreover, the jury also discredited 64-year-old John Leonard MacKean of communicating for the purpose of obtaining sexual services from a person under 18.
The two primary suspects of the assault, who took care of the 16-year-old boy from Halifax to a remote shack in 2012, chained him and raped him for 10 days. Eventually the boy successfully managed to free himself and escape through a boarded window. Among the two suspects, one man pleaded guilty and the other is dead. However, Edmonton Police discovered that a third man arrived about halfway through his captivity and performed oral sex on him but the boy claims that he was blindfolded so he was unable to identify the man.
