Kingstonians Call for Judge to be Removed

Many people are upset after a Kingston judge let a Queen's student take an summer internship after pleading guilty to assault.

An online petition to remove Justice Allan Letourneau from the bench already has over 11,000 signatures.

Chance MacDonald, 22,  pleaded guilty in April, but his sentencing was put over so it couldn't cost him a four month internship.

The charges stem from an incident in the fall of 2015, and involved a teen girl.

Macdonald was sentenced to 88 days of  jail time, to be served on weekends.
