One of the girls testified that she was abused almost weekly from the early age of 9 years old until she was 20. She said that she would ask the couple if she could accept more assaults from the husband and wife duo so her little sister can be spared from some of the abuse. But the couple refused.
The girl’s names cannot be mentioned as they were minors at the time.
Laporte (the husband) has already served 30 months in prison for assaulting a boy Stephane Brabant who was placed in his care back in the 80s. The victim testified saying that too was abused on a weekly basis with Laporte’s belt, both on his back and buttocks until he bled. The couple refused to bring him to the hospital for medical assistance, and also kept him from seeing his mother because of his multiple wounds.
The Judge, has refused to release the couple on bail pending their next court appearance for sentencing which is scheduled for May of this year.
