A filmmaker from Vancouver has been sentenced to 11 years in jail after he committed a series of criminal offences. He drugged, sexually assaulted and filmed three women who were unconscious. The story and details are horrifying.
One of his three victims, who was a nurse, was lured into his apartment in Vancouver through him using his position as a filmmaker and telling her that he needed her help with an emergency room scene that he was working on. He then drugged her with the date-rape drug GHB and when she was unconscious, he sexually assaulted her and filmed her.
In another incident, he sexually assaulted and photographed a woman who thought they were good friends, when they were at a club in Vancouver, according to CBC News. She was also unconscious when the assault occurred.
Filmmaker Ying Ho Raymond Law was sentenced to 11 years in prison by the B.C. Supreme Court Justice Jennifer Duncan. Regarding the crime, she wrote, according to CBC News, "The three complainants were obviously emotionally affected by Mr. Law's crimes. All three are plagued with the uncertainty of whether or not the images of them may surface in public forums at some point in the future."
Ironically enough, the 55-year-old filmmaker was the producer of an anti-drug movie named Ecstasy. And yet, he was guilty of doing the thing that his movie was supposedly against and his crimes had parallels with the story of his movie, according to CBC News.
He has been convicted of 10 charges and is now serving time in prison. He will also be registered as a sex offender.
