Sentence Handed Down In Niquab Assault Case
A judge has decided the fate of the woman who pleaded guilty in a Mississauga niquab assault case.
Rosemarie Creswell suspended sentence plus one year of probation and community service - meaning she won't serve any time.
Creswell had been charged will pulling the face veil off of shopper Inas Kadri as her two children watched at the Sheridan Centre mall in August 2010. Creswell was one of two women who approached Kadri, swearing at her.
The judge recommended Creswell do part of her community service in a Mulsim centre.
While local Imam Yusuf Bedat says he would have liked to have seen some time served, spending more time with Muslims will benefit her if she wants to change.
Human rights lawyer Faisal Kutty says it's a fair judgement he hopes Creswell will be more understanding of multi-culteralism after this.
