Hockey Coach Not Guilty of Group Sex w/Players

David Frost, former junior hockey coach and NHL agent with tentacles allegedly so deep into former NHL player Mike Danton that Danton tried to hire a hitman to kill Frost, could not be proven in an Ontario court to have used some or all of those tentacles in group sex with his junior team members and their girlfriends, ages 14-16.

Apparently, the prosecutors could not get anyone but the girls (now in their late 20s) to admit to the orgies.  Without any other evidence, the judge found the delightful Mr. Frost not guilty.

Frost’s attorney, Marie Henein, claimed the Crown couldn’t prove Frost to be a controlling and conniving sadist who abused young boys through emotional and physical abuse, thus negating the other half of the requirements for sexual exploitation of youth.  This seems unlikely as the Canadian press has spent much of the last decade doing just that.

His lawyer also noted, in case the judge or anyone else listening might have grown confused and actually thought orgies were happening under Frost’s watch that he shouldn’t have that held against him (as reported here earlier):

Group sex, Henein also said, is common in the hockey world, and “Mr. Frost didn’t invent it.”

Well, there you go!  If a crime is unoriginal, then you don’t have to be punished for it.

In case you had any doubt that the judge would have preferred to rule any other way, listen to his remarks upon adjudication:

Ontario Court Justice Geoff Griffin found Frost not guilty on all counts Friday, but added the case had “exposed a dark and very unhealthy side of hockey.” “It’s extremely offensive and must be denounced,” Griffin said in handing down his judgment.

So… if we denounce something, it gets fixed? We have a notion of something we’d like to denounce, then.
