Unique Sentence For Assault On Girlfriend

I don't know exactly how that could be enforced, I guess they will have to strictly monitor all of the guy's social interactions. Of course it all hinges upon him getting the proper help, and the help working.

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario (AP) -- A judge has ruled that a 24-year-old Canadian man is not allowed to have a girlfriend for the next three years.

The ruling came after Steven Cranley pleaded guilty on Tuesday to several charges stemming from an assault on a former girlfriend.

Cranley, who has been diagnosed with a dependent personality disorder, attacked his girlfriend in an argument after their breakup.

He tried to prevent her from phoning the police by cutting her phone cord and punched and kicked her. He finally stabbed himself with a butcher knife when police did arrive, puncturing his aorta.

Doctors say Cranley has difficulty coping with rejection and runs a high risk to re-offend if he becomes involved in another intimate relationship.

Justice Rhys Morgan said Cranley "cannot form a romantic relationship of an intimate nature with a female person.

"That is the only way I can see the protection of the public is in place until you get the counseling you need."

Cranley had already served 146 days in pre-trail custody, which Morgan said was enough jail time in this case.

His lawyer says the no girlfriend order is the first of its kind that he has encountered.

But seriously, where do these judges come up with this shit? How in the world do you expect to execute this?

I know men who haven't had "girlfriends" in over a decade, yet still have relationships...

Well I would assume it is open to a wider interpretation by the courts, otherwise women would be in danger being in any sort of contact with him in which they were alone and violence was possible if he sensed rejection, etc. And how do you define that in someone who behaves like that?

It does say "cannot form a romantic relationship of an intimate nature with a female person." What the exact definition of that is is subject to interpretation and it must be expanded upon in the ruling. Personally I wouldn't even want to be friends with a guy like him if it involved being alone with him and in certain situations, if I knew about his problems. And women can also be wary depending upon personal experiences they've had.

At least perhaps this shows that a judge is taking steps to take such a case seriously and try to protect women, whether it can work remains to be seen.

Judge: And what would that be?

I wish I could keep a former boyfriend away from me like that. It would save me a phone call.
