Our Interview With Graham James Sexual Assault Victim Greg Gilhooly

Recently on Offside, we interviewed Greg Gilhooly.

Greg was allegedly sexually assaulted by convicted pedophile Graham James over a period of 3 years beginning in 1979 when he was 14 years old.

In 2010, criminal charges were filed against James stemming from his sexual assault of Gilhooly, as well as Theoren Fleury and Todd Holt. Ultimately, the charges against Gilhooly were stayed, and Graham James pled guilty to sexually assaulting Fleury and Holt and was sentenced to 2 years in jail.  James can apply to be released within 8 months and within 16 months will likely be free.

Greg is quite articulate and well-spoken and speaks on this topic with great clarity. Greg is also a lawyer. He went to Princeton, then followed that up with University of Toronto Law School and articles at Torys. After that he worked in-house at CanWest and Cookie Jar Entertainment.

It is important that we remind ourselves of the utterly devastating effects of child sexual assault.
