A female police officer who was sexually assaulted by a male colleague has spent nearly three years being sidelined from her job – and says she is now being offered a few months’ salary to quit.
Denise Robinson, 38, says she was raped and then effectively dismissed because of it. She recently told a Quebec court that reporting the crime took “every ounce of courage” she could muster – but, in the end, she was “suspended” and “betrayed” by her police force.
For three years she had worked at patrolling Inuit communities in Quebec’s far north. But ever since she reported the February, 2010, sexual assault days after it happened, she has not worked or received a paycheque. At the same time, the police officer who assaulted her served only a brief suspension before being allowed to return to work for two years – until this past August, when he was sent to jail as a convicted criminal beginning an 18-month term.
