A man who performed an amateur circumcision on his four-year-old son on the floor of the family kitchen has been found guilty of criminal negligence.
The man, identified only as D.J.W. in a written B.C. Supreme Court ruling released this week, was found not guilty of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.
Justice Marion Allan said D.J.W. ought to have known better, partly because a circumcision he earlier performed on himself led to bleeding, sutures and infection.
The fact that the accused had previously ineptly circumcised himself exacerbates, rather than minimizes, his awareness of the risks of home circumcision and his negligence, she noted.
A trial last month heard the accused is not Jewish, but follows the Old and New Testaments of the Bible and believed it necessary to circumcise his child before Passover.

Yeah, but he stayed at the Holiday Inn Express the night before.
That poor child will be scared for life. He needs a restraining order for his twisted father.
TRUE. Dear God what a mistake of a human that father is.

Inquiring minds wonder why the father’s name is withheld.
