Eight Years

A Petawawa soldier was sentenced Monday to eight years and nine months in prison for secretly videotaping and taking photographs of women during sexual assaults.

In Pembroke superior court, Cpl. Derrick Gallagher learned he will receive five years and four months of credit for the pre-sentence custody he had already accumulated.

The 33-year-old infantryman, a member of the Royal Canadian Regiment, pleaded guilty last summer to six counts of sexual assault and three counts of voyeurism by making visual recordings.

Justice Martin James told the accused that he will have to serve another 42 months in prison. Upon his release, he will be under a federal long-term supervision order for six years.
