A man drunk on mouthwash who performed oral sex on his unconscious sister in Rainbow Park was sentenced to jail-time served and three years probation Tuesday in Sarnia court.
The 38-year-old pleaded guilty to committing an indecent act May 4 in the south Christina Street park.
A publication ban was imposed to protect the sisterâ€™s identity.
The man doesnâ€™t recall the incident but didnâ€™t dispute it occurred, based on a witnessâ€™s statement.
A family visiting the park about 6:30 p.m. came upon the couple on a park bench, police had reported earlier.
Defence lawyer Robert McFadden noted his client was incomprehensible when arrested because he and his sister had been drinking alcohol-laced mouthwash.
The woman was intoxicated and unconscious throughout the incident.
The mother of the pair told McFadden she hopes her son didnâ€™t realize the woman was his sister. She called it the low point in her sonâ€™s life of alcohol abuse, the lawyer said.
â€œI canâ€™t imagine it could get any lower,â€ replied Justice Mark Hornblower, who agreed with McFadden it was a â€œdisgustingâ€ act.
McFadden said the man is ashamed of what he did and has asked his mother and sister for forgiveness.
â€œI believe the family can work through this,â€ he said.
The man told the court, â€I am going to have to live with this . . . I need to get help.â€
Hornblower sentenced him to the 64 days served in pre-sentence custody and the maximum allowable probation term of three years.
He directed the man to get help for alcohol abuse, including enrolment in a residential treatment centre.
He can have no contact with the witness who reported the incident or his sister, unless the sister gives written consent to a probation officer.
He is also banned from any public park if he has been drinking.
â€œItâ€™s not for the public to have your problem imposed on them,â€ Hornblower said.
