    That website is among the driving forces in online bullying and I still cannot believe it has not been taken down.

    There are 2 other websites of the same type, except people post pictures of Halifax girls nude(Stolen from their Model Mayhem websites), and all they do is talk trash like that about them.

    Don't promote them by using their evil website

    A suspended Halifax officer facing sexual assault charges was arrested in Newfoundland last weekend, after police say he was once again found in breach of his conditions.

    On Tuesday, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) told Halifax Regional Police that they had charged Const. Chris Mosher with nine counts of breaching his court-imposed conditions last Saturday on George Street in St. John’s.

    According to a release, the Newfoundland police launched an investigation after receiving a complaint from a member of the public on May 7.

    Mosher was arrested just after 12 a.m. on May 11 at a licensed establishment on the popular bar-lined street, according to police.

    Police say Mosher remains in custody at a St. John’s jail.

    Mosher, 30, was first charged by the Serious Incident Response Team in February with sexual assault and administering a noxious substance with intent to aggrieve after an alleged incident last November.

    He is due in court for that case on June 17 for a preliminary inquiry, and remains suspended from the Halifax Regional Police without pay or benefits.

    Mosher was charged with breaching his conditions multiple times last year, including two incidents where he was drinking alcohol in July and August.

    So exactly what recourse has this guy faced or will for breaching conditions 10+ times?
    Nova Scotia is embarrassing when it comes to sexual assault cases.

    http://thechronicleherald.ca/metro/...-testifies-at-halifax-cop’s-sex-assault-trial

    A suspended Halifax Regional Police officer’s sexual assault trial got underway in Dartmouth provincial court Monday with testimony from the alleged victim.

    The 27-year-old woman said she did not consent to have sexual contact with Const. Christopher James Mosher at his house in Eastern Passage on the night of Nov. 2, 2012.

    She said they spent the evening sitting on the couch consuming vodka drinks mixed by Mosher. She recalls finishing her third drink while eating a bag of popcorn and watching a movie.

    The next thing she remembers is waking up alone in Mosher’s bed the next morning, naked with only a sheet over her. Her clothes were scattered around the room.

    When the woman got up and went to the bathroom, she could not find the tampon she had been wearing so she assumed she must have disposed of it.

    Friends talked her into going to Dartmouth General Hospital later that day. She said she hoped a blood or urine test would reveal whether she had been drugged but was told that in order to have those samples taken, she would have submit to a sexual assault examination.

    She left the hospital hours later without any tests being done.

    “At that point, I didn’t know if I had been sexually assaulted and didn’t want to go through that process,” she testified.

    “I didn’t know what had happened. I think I wanted to believe that I hadn’t been sexually assaulted. . . . I didn’t want to make those allegations until I knew something.”

    She returned to the hospital a day or two later after receiving phone calls from the director of the sexual assault nurse examiner program. Nurses took a blood sample and she handed over the underwear she had worn the day after the encounter with Mosher.

    Someone from the province’s Serious Incident Response Team, which investigates criminal complaints against police officers, contacted her later that week and she agreed to provide a statement.

    The day after giving that statement, she realized the missing tampon was actually deep inside her. She was able to remove it, sealed it in a baggie and turned it over to investigators.

    The woman agreed to let SIRT record two phone calls she placed to Mosher. During those calls, she told Mosher she couldn’t remember what had gone on between them that night.

    “You were on fire,” Mosher said. “You were hilarious.”

    When she pressed him for details, he said, “We were tired and we went to bed. . . . We made out a bit but nothing serious.”

    Mosher joked that the woman owed him a sleepover. “Maybe a sleepover I can remember,” she said.

    When the woman speculated about how the tampon got so far inside her, Mosher said, “We didn’t have sex. I wouldn’t lie to you. You were very playful though.”

    The woman told the court she had no interest in having sex with Mosher that night because she was menstruating.

    The trial is set for three days in front of Judge Flora Buchan. A charge of administering a stupefying drug was dismissed Monday at the start of the hearing after Crown attorney Dan Rideout announced he would not be seeking a conviction on that allegation.

    The complainant, whose identity is protected, will be back on the stand Tuesday. Rideout said he plans to call eight to 12 witnesses altogether, including a toxicologist and a DNA expert.

    Mosher, 31, was suspended from the police force with pay after his arrest in December 2012. His salary and benefits were cut off in September 2013 after he was charged with breaching his release conditions by drinking alcohol.

    An official with the Halifax Regional Police Association, the union that represents officers on the force, is observing the trial.

    http://thechronicleherald.ca/novascotia/1330387-cop’s-dna-found-on-woman’s-underwear-tampon-trial-hears

    Christopher James Mosher’s DNA was found on the string of a tampon a woman removed from her body several days after she spent a night at his house, the Halifax police officer’s sexual assault trial heard Tuesday.

    Mosher’s DNA was also detected on the other side of the tampon and inside the back crotch area of the panties the woman wore the day after the encounter, according to an agreed statement of facts presented to a judge.

    No semen was confirmed to be present in any of the samples, the statement said.

    Mosher, 32, is accused of having sex with the woman without her consent after they had drinks together at his house in Eastern Passage on the night of Nov. 2, 2012.

    His trial sat for three days in Dartmouth provincial court last April and is continuing this week in an overflow courtroom at Summit Place in Halifax.

    The woman, whose identity is protected, testified last spring that she blacked out after consuming about 3½ drinks of vodka, cranberry juice and orange juice prepared by Mosher. She woke up the next morning alone in the officer’s bed. She was naked and her clothes were scattered around the bedroom.

    She told the court she did not consent to have sexual contact with Mosher, whom she had met about two weeks earlier. She said she had no interest in having sex that night and was menstruating.

    When she was unable to find her tampon the next morning, she assumed she had disposed of it. Several days later, she realized it was still inside her body.

    The woman bagged the tampon and gave it to the province’s Serious Incident Response Team, which was already investigating Mosher.

    Halifax Regional Police officer Chris Mosher acquitted of sex assault
    Mosher faced charge in relation to alleged November 2012 incident

    A Halifax Regional Police officer has been acquitted of sexual assault following a trial in Dartmouth provincial court.

    Const. Chris Mosher was found not guilty on Monday. He was charged in February 2013 with sexual assault and administering a stupefying drug in relation to an alleged November 2012 incident at his home.

    The charge of administering a stupefying drug was dropped at a previous court appearance.

    Mosher was also facing multiple charges for breaching his release conditions, both in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

    Mosher was suspended from his police duties without pay or benefits. CBC News has reached out to Halifax Regional Police to find out whether he will be reinstated.

    https://www.halifaxexaminer.ca/city...ved-a-cash-payout-and-a-new-job-from-the-city

    After he was charged with sexual assault and then for repeatedly violating the conditions of his release, Halifax cop Chris Mosher was fired last year by the Halifax police department.

    But Mosher has successfully appealed his firing, and has received a cash payout from the city and a new job working with either the city’s Parks & Recreation Department or the Transportation & Public Works Department.

    Mosher received the cash and job as part of a confidential settlement agreement between Mosher, the city, and the police union. The settlement agreement was signed on August 21, 2018, and was approved by the Nova Scotia Police Review Board on August 31.

    Mosher faced difficulties even before he became a cop. “When he was still a cadet, Mosher was dismissed from the regional police training program,” reported Dan Arsenault for the Chronicle Herald. “He was subsequently reinstated.”

    Mosher was hired by the Halifax Regional Police Department in 2008. In 2009, he was charged with assaulting a woman during a domestic dispute, but that charge was subsequently withdrawn with the crown saying “there was no realistic chance of conviction,” reported Arsenault.

    In December 2012, Mosher was charged with sexual assault and “administering a noxious thing with intent to aggrieve” after an incident on the night of November 2, 2012; a woman who had been dating Mosher for a week said Mosher had intercourse with her without her consent after an evening of drinking at Mosher’s Eastern Passage home. After he was charged, Mosher was suspended from the police force, with pay.

    But the charge of administering a noxious thing was dropped before trial, and Mosher was acquitted on the sexual assault charge in January 2016; “it cannot be said beyond a reasonable doubt that (the complainant) did not give consent,” ruled Judge Flora Buchan.

    During the three-plus years awaiting trial, however, Mosher faced additional charges for numerous violations of the terms of his release on the sexual assault charge, and one charge of impaired driving.

    After the 2012 sexual assault charge, Mosher had been released from custody with the standard conditions applied — including that he abstain from drinking alcohol outside of his home or with a woman. But in September 2013, Mosher was charged with two violations of his conditions, for “drinking outside of his residence and also in the presence of a woman who is not a family member,” for an August 22, 2013 incident in Lunenburg.

    In response to those charges, police chief Jean-Michel Blais revoked Mosher’s pay.

    On October 2013, Mosher was charged with two more counts of breaching his conditions by drinking outside his residence on July 7, 2013 in Eastern Passage. He was later charged with impaired driving, related to the same incident.

    In December 2013, the Serious Incident Response Team (SIRT) charged Mosher with four more counts of breaching those conditions by drinking over the course of seven months in 2013 at four locations in Lantz, Dartmouth, and Halifax.

    In May 2014, Mosher was arrested at the Martini Bar on George Street in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and charged with nine counts of breaching his conditions. After spending about three weeks in jail, Mosher pleaded guilty to four of the counts and was sentenced to time served.

    Back in Nova Scotia, the impaired driving charge was dismissed in June 2015, when prosecutors didn’t present any evidence in court. That summer, Mosher pleaded guilty to four counts of breaching his conditions and was conditionally released with a year of probation. The remaining charges appear to have been dropped.
