Sex Offender Sentenced to Jail Free on Bail

Convicted sex offender, Neil Joynt is free on bail following a court appearance last week where a judge sentenced him to eight months in jail.

Joynt's lawyer filed an appeal on Wednesday, and Joynt was let go that night with a court date scheduled for October in Toronto.

The 76 year-old former hockey billet and school teacher was convicted in October 2016 on two counts of sexual assault dating back to the 1960's and 1970's.
