No jail time for sex crimes

Community Featured

For sex crimes committed against teenagers, Amy Hood will not serve jail time.

Years after she was initially arrested, Carolyn Amy Hood was sentenced Wednesday morning in Pictou Provincial Court. After being found guilty of two counts of luring a minor, one count of sexual exploitation and one count of touching for a sexual purpose, Hood was sentenced to house arrest by provincial court Judge Del Atwood.

Hood received indictable level victim surcharges of $200 for each count as well as one year of house arrest, 15 months of conditional sentence order which includes restrictions on computer and electronic device use, as well as not being able to attend facilities geared more towards children such as swimming pools, and no contact with children under 16 unless a parent or guardian is present. She also received 24 months of probation to be served successive to the other parts of the sentence.
