He faces 15 criminal charges, including:
Eight counts of assault.
Two counts of sexual assault.
Two counts of unlawful confinement.
One count of uttering threats.
One count of public mischief.
One count of administering a noxious thing.
It’s clear what is going on here. “When Boyle and his family were released after five years of captivity, American intelligence officials publicly said they had long suspected Boyle had entered Afghanistan with the desire to hook up with ‘Taliban-affiliated militants.’” And he was married to Omar Khadr’s older sister at one time. Omar Khadr is the jihadi from Canada who confessed to murdering one American soldier and blinding another, and was still freed and given $10 million by the Trudeau government in Canada.
Boyle is a true believer, and he is now just imitating his heroes, who think that kuffar women are theirs for the taking. But in Canada, that is still illegal, at least for now.
“Former Afghanistan captive Joshua Boyle charged with sex assault, forcible confinement,” by Gary Dimmock, Toronto Sun, January 2, 2018 (thanks to Meir):
Joshua Boyle, rescued along with his family in October after five years in captivity in Afghanistan, is now in an Ottawa jail on charges of sexual assault, forcible confinement and administering a noxious drug.
Boyle, 34, spent New Year’s Day at the Innes Road jail after Ottawa police arrested him after an alleged series of disturbing crimes dating back to Oct. 14 — two days after Boyle called his family in Canada to tell them he had been freed.
Boyle was abducted by a Taliban-linked group while on what he described as a backpacking trip. His children were born and raised in captivity until their rescue by Pakistani commandos.
The son of an Ottawa tax court judge, Boyle had previously been in the public spotlight because of his brief marriage to Omar Khadr’s older sister and the work of the Canadian government to secure his release. He and his family met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last month following their rescue.
Boyle is also charged with misleading police on Dec. 30 after reporting that someone was suicidal and missing.
Police are alleging that Boyle concocted the story to “divert suspicion from himself.”
In all, Boyle is facing 15 criminal charges, ranging from assault, to sexual assault, to forcible confinement and administering a noxious drug (trazodone, an antidepressant with anti-anxiety and sleep-inducing effects).
A lawyer for Boyle, meanwhile, called the situation “a completely new experience for Mr. Boyle, as he has never been in trouble before.
“He is presumed innocent of all of the charges. At this early stage, we have not received any of the evidence in this case, but we are eager to receive any evidence there is and look forward to defending Mr. Boyle against these charges in court.
“He is eager for the full story to be presented at the appropriate time in court.”
This newspaper has a policy of not identifying sex assault complainants, and none of the charges has been proved in court.
Boyle was held in jail after his New Year’s Day court hearing.
When Boyle and his family were released after five years of captivity, American intelligence officials publicly said they had long suspected Boyle had entered Afghanistan with the desire to hook up with “Taliban-affiliated militants.”
Despite the length of their captivity, no ransom was ever demanded by their kidnappers.
When asked by ABC News following his rescue why he was in Afghanistan, Boyle refused to answer….
