Randal Dooley Appeal Denied

On Tuesday, the Ontario Court of Appeal dismissed the couple's argument that they should be granted a new trial because the judge made legal errors which resulted in jury verdicts based on emotion, not evidence. This was one of the worst cases of child abuse in Canada, and these two had the nerve to ask for a retrial. I’m sorry but for what they did to this young boy, they deserve to rot in jail.

Randal had wasted to just 41 pounds and had 13 fractured ribs, a lacerated liver, four brain injuries, and head-to-toe bruises when he died in 1998. Randal was born in Jamaica and came to Canada to live with his father and stepmother in November 1997, 11 months before his death.
