Canadian federal judge Robin Camp acquitted Alexander Scott of sexual assault in September 2014 while still a Calgary provincial court judge – a decision later overturned by Alberta Court of Appeal.
At various points during the initial trial, Judge Camp asked the complainant, a 19-year-old homeless woman: “Why didn’t you just sink your bottom down into the basin so he couldn’t penetrate you?” and “Why couldn’t you just keep your knees together?”
The Calgary Herald reported that because the complainant said she had asked her alleged attacker if he had a condom, Judge Camp told the court that it was “an inescapable conclusion (that) if you have one I’m happy to have sex with you”.
He also said the complainant had not explained “why she allowed the sex to happen if she didn’t want it?”
