Man fined for helping daughter bolt CFS care

A man who helped his daughter, who was in Child and Family Services care, run away from her group home has been fined.

The man can’t be named as it’s illegal to publish information that would reveal the girl’s identity.

The 40-year-old man pleaded guilty in Brandon provincial court on Thursday to harbouring a child in care under the Child and Family Services Act.

Crown attorney Deidre Badcock said the man’s 16-year-old daughter is originally from Winnipeg but was placed in a Brandon group home due to past allegations that her dad had abused her, Badcock said.

Despite that, court heard that it was the girl who called her father to pick her up, apparently for a visit.

However, a staff member for the organization that runs the group home followed as the father drove his daughter away.

That staff member then called police who pulled over the father’s car.

Defence lawyer Ryan Fawcett said it doesn’t seem that the girl was in danger during the short period she was with her father.

Despite the allegations of abuse, Fawcett said it appears the father doesn’t face criminal charges and doesn’t have any prior convictions that relate to his daughter.

Judge John Combs fined the man $500.
