Attention ladies: don’t let this fat little beady-eyed fuck
buy you a drink. Not even a coffee. If you see his smirking visage nearby, run.
The asshole in the picture, Fernando Manuel Alves, has a right to smirk: he beat the system:
The former owner of a Burnaby, B.C., pub has been handed a nine-month conditional sentence after pleading guilty to sexual assault in a case that prompted criticism of the police from the convicted man’s lawyer.
Fernando Manuel Alves, 46, had faced four charges of sexual assault and one charge of administering a noxious substance.
His arrest two years ago prompted police to warn the public about drink-spiking.
Alves ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault after the other assault charges and the administering charge were dismissed following a preliminary hearing.
His lawyer, Lawrence Myers, maintains that Alves couldn’t possibly be the kind of man police have made him out to be,
(write your own caption), which might prompt one to wonder exactly what kind of man he thinks routinely drugs and rapes women… just a “regular guy”? Why not? With Myers’ client list, Alves probably is a pretty regular guy. But that’s to be expected when your business is criminal law. However, the sleaze shouldn’t extend to the judge, who callously dismissed the assaults as a “crime of opportunity” and allowed the creep to walk without a day of time. Does that make sense? (Or cents? Or maybe $en$e?)
It would be interesting to know who the judge was, and what other cases he’s presided over. Dr. Dawg is on it: this ain’t over.
