Joshua Boyle Arrested, Faces 15 Charges Including Forcible Confinement, Eight Counts Of Assault, & Uttering Death Threats


He is now in custody facing charges for alleged crimes that took place since he was brought to Canada after being held hostage. Among the charges are two counts of sexual assault, and one count of misleading police.

Joshua Boyle will appear in an Ottawa court on Wednesday to face 15 charges.

As reported by the Toronto Star, the charges against Boyle – who along with his family had been held hostage in Afghanistan & Pakistan – include two charges of unlawful confinement, two counts of sexual assault, eight counts of assault, one count of misleading police, one count of “causing someone to take a noxious thing, namely Trazodone,” and one count of uttering death threats.

According to the report, the alleged crimes took place in the city of Ottawa, and occurred between October 14 and December 30.

The report notes, “Boyle’s lawyer Eric Granger told the Star that his client is presumed innocent and that he is “eager to see” the evidence in the case. “Mr. Boyle is a young man who we all know has been through a lot. He has never been in trouble with the law,” Granger wrote in an email. “We look forward to receiving that evidence and defending him against these charges in court.”

The Star also noted a statement by Joshua’s wife Caitlan:

“I can’t speak about the specific charges, but I can say that ultimately it is the strain and trauma he was forced to endure for so many years and the effects that that had on his mental state that is most culpable for this. Obviously, he is responsible for his own actions,” she wrote, “but it is with compassion and forgiveness that I say I hope help and healing can be found for him. As to the rest of us, myself and the children, we are healthy and holding up as well as we can.”

Questionable visit

The Boyle family had recently visited Justin Trudeau in the Prime Minister’s Office, a visit that many found questionable considering Boyle’s past ties to the Khadr family, including having served as a spokesman for the family, and having been married to Omar Khadr’s sister Zaynab.

Strangely, the Boyle family twitter posted the following text accompanying photos of the visit:

“Incidentally, not our first meeting with @JustinTrudeau, that was ’06 in Toronto over other common interests, haha.”

The PMO has not said what those “common interests” were.

  1. More of JT’s “friends” (haha) … were they meeting over even more common interests (haha) … maybe someone like CSIS should be examining just what those common interests are (haha) … !!!!

    1. EXACTLY, I for one would like to know exactly what that meant. I cant wait for the day, like with Hillary Clinton… his crimes/corruption starts floating to the top for all to see.

  2. I for one would be interested in seeing documentation of his “imprisonment” – couldn’t have been too harsh if he was allowed to have children – but never fear – jt will have a program for him – if he remains PM long enough .

  3. Thanks, Spencer, for keeping us informed about this. I figured the family were Jihadists on Jihadist vacation and got “rescued” against their wills by the US. How much are we going to give them for their pain and suffering by Trudeau?

    1. Khalid’s M-103 isn’t law yet. We still have freedom of speech. I would hope that Spencer’s readers would refrain from using the name of the person who is unmentionable. AKA Member from Papineau.

  4. Trudeau might have to advance him the standard $10.5 M along with the requisite apology quickly so he can pay his lawyer. Nothing but scandal after scandal with the obviously not ready, ( and never will be ) grossly incompetent and very arrogant PM.

  5. OF COURSE…. my White Wife, the honest woman who has supported me in her country as things went tits up for me, gets more scrutiny than a leper case by my country (CANADA)’s immigration and has to pass more stringent financial requirements than friends of my Prime Minister. The WHOLE REASON we wish to return as a family to my home country is economic: we cannot support our basic needs in Poland without accepting almost daily handouts. In Canada, at least, we can support ourselves with some minimum wage jobs (because, you know, all the good jobs go to “Special Interest Groups.”)

    But WE are the bad guys. 2018 looks to be more of the same from 2017, which was more of the same from 2016…. without a final solution. https://www.generosity.com/emergencies-fundraising/save-wysoka-s-dad-give-her-family-a-new-chance–2

  6. Any bets the Member from Papineau will again over ride the Canadian Court System and Judges and decide that not only is this scum not guilty but that Boil’s feelings had been hurt and he got wet and lost some sleep or something. Out comes the Liberal cheque book.

    Ignoring Canadian Laws ans deciding the Canadian Courts are a waste of taxpayer money is quickly becoming Liberal culture.

  7. I have to agree 100% w every comment above. I can’t stand to see or hear his voice or person. He is a irritant, like lice, you can’t get rid of. He is a pathetic excuse of a human that doesn’t give a fig for Canada or it’s occupants.I fear the next election, giving the new immigrants citizenship so they can vote. We cannot guarantee he is going to loose the election in 2019 and everyone of us is going to have to work to make it happen. The problem is if you live in a blue province, we can’t do much to help in the red provinces.
