Indecent assault: Bolduc’s half-sister testifies

“The first aggression is as clear as the last. ”
Caroline Labrecque described in great detail on Monday at the courthouse of Sherbrooke sexual assault she allegedly suffered as a child.

His half-brother Jean-Guy Bolduc is accused of committing repeated sexual acts against a child who was fostered in the 1970s and 1980s in Sherbrooke.

He is charged with indecent assault and gross indecency between 1972 and 1983 before Justice Claire Desgens of the Court of Quebec.

Caroline Labrecque was five months old when she arrived in the family of ten children.

She states that the first assaults occurred when she was 4 years old and are over when she was 15 years old.

“It has been over a period of more than ten years in many places. The first time, I was 4 years old and he was 29 years old. He was married, “remembers the victim.

She told the first assault while she was being kept at Bolduc.

“I slept on a couch. He put his hand in my pants to fuck me. The TV was open. At each assault, there was something on, “says the alleged victim who described the sexual acts Bolduc would have subjected him.

She remembers that Bolduc was never naked during the assaults she was subjected to. She testifies to the gestures of forced blowjobs, masturbation suffered and sexual touching of which she was victim.

“It’s the touching that woke me up. You are scared. You are paralyzed. At each aggression, he told me shh, hush, hush. I can still hear it clearly. He repeated this throughout the aggression, “says Caroline Labrecque.

“It’s part of my journey. ”
