Quebec man charged with sexual assault set free

Quebec, Canada - 47-year-old Serge Levac, who was charged with sexually assaulting a woman with Down syndrome, has been set free because the woman could not pick him out from a series of photos or from a physical lineup. As reported by Canwest News Service and the Windsor Star, a Quebec Court judge said last Thursday that there was no doubt the woman had been sexually assaulted and that Serge Levac, who is HIV positive, has probably assaulted her, but because she couldn't couldn't identify him with 100% certainty, he had to acquit him. Levac was charged with aggravated sexual assault, break and enter, making death threats and sexual assault with a weapon.
