Thomas Leonard Molloy

The Crown asked a judge this morning to sentence Thomas Leonard Molloy of St. John’s to between three and four years in prison for sexually assaulting a young girl in the late 1990s.
The defence, however, suggests a sentence in the range of 18 months is appropriate in the case.
Justice James Adams adjourned court to consider the submissions and is expected to hand down his decision later this morning.
Molloy was found guilty in November following a trial in Newfoundland Supreme Court in St. John’s.
Molloy, 49, was convicted of six sex-related offences – two counts each of sexually assaulting the girl, touching her for a sexual purpose and inviting her to touch him for a sexual purpose.
The abuse took place in two different outport communities from 1996 to 1998 when the girl was between the ages of eight and 10.
In order to protect her identity, her name and the locations of the incidents are banned from publication.
