Paul and Michelle Frost were married at one time. They were partners in life and according to the Crown’s case, partners in various sexual assaults against three young girls who lived in their home from time to time.
Some of the charges involved Mr. Frost alone, some involved Mrs. Frost alone and some involved both. They were tried together before a judge alone and were convicted of most of the offences. They both appealed both the convictions and the sentences: 2012 ONCA 807.
During the course of the trial Paul Frost testified. He denied the allegations of one of the complainants stating that there was no sexual activity. In relation to the allegations of the second complainant, he explained that the touching was inadvertent. In response to the third complainant he testified that not only was the sexual activity consensual but that some of it had been initiated by the complainant.
