Court is in Session!
Criminal lawyers Adam Goodman and Scott Cowan are joined by Barry Davis to shed light on sexual assault in minor sports.
At least 222 coaches involved amateur sports, in Canada, have been convicted in the last 20 years.
Is there a profile of the offender? How about the victim? Can there be early warning signs that someone is trending towards a dangerous situation.
The guys discuss working in close quarters with coaches and where to draw the line.
