05.23 - Not-Guilty Verdict Returned in Kenneth Harrisson Trial

Provincial Court Judge Mark Pike returns not-guilty verdict in widely-covered Newfoundland "sex doll" trial. See below for media coverage of the verdict.

Huffington Post, 'Newfoundland Man Found Not Guilty in Trial Over Child-Sized Sex Doll'

The Telegram, 'St. John's man accused of ordering child sex doll found not guilty'

CBC News, 'Sex Doll is porn, but judge finds Kenneth Harrisson not guilty'

The death of Don Dunphy is a tragedy that has affected not only his immediate family and community but the province as a whole. It’s a sign of how close-knit and down-to-earth we are that when one of our own is killed, there is a collective outpouring of grief and outrage. And when that death occurs under troubling and mystifying circumstances, it causes a natural sense of fear and demand for answers and action.

The officer at the centre of the controversy over why and how Mr. Dunphy was killed has not been named, and the investigation is ongoing. Yet on Friday that officer sent a mass email to his colleagues, which has since been released to the media and published and shared widely.
