Florida sex-offender who had relations with 16-year-old granted refugee status in Canada
National Post ^ | May 16, 2014 | Katrina Clarke

A Florida sex offender who had sex with a 16-year-old boy and fled to Saskatchewan, where she claimed asylum, has been granted refugee status in Canada.

Denise Harvey, 47, was convicted in 2008 of five counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, a boy who was on her son’s baseball team. She is wanted in the U.S., where she is facing a 30-year prison sentence.

“The [Immigration and Refugee Board] granted Ms. Harvey protected person status. This status allows Ms. Harvey to apply for permanent residency,” wrote a spokesperson for Citizenship and Immigration Canada in an email to the National Post Thursday.

Such rulings involving Americans are rare: The IRB told the National Post Thursday that only three such claims were accepted in 2013.

Ms. Harvey, a mortgage broker, and the 16-year-old met at her son’s baseball practices. The two had sex five times at the boy’s father’s house and after hours in her office.

In November, 2009, Ms. Harvey, her husband and son, fled their Vero Beach, Fla. home and moved to Pike Lake, Sask.

One and a half years later, in April 2011, she was arrested by RCMP.

She just raised the quality of people in both countries.

If that was my son she or anyone else molested there would be no where to run. ‘Prottected’ status or not.

The eyes tell the story ... very split personality, with both sides in the gutter.

So. No statuary rape or child molestation statutes in Canada?

I don’t think she molested the boy. I suspect he was probably a willing particpant until they got caught.

Take a card and place it over one side of her face then the other. She is two separate people in there!

“I don’t think she molested the boy. I suspect he was probably a willing particpant until they got caught.”

I agree.
That doesn’t make it right and she is still a criminal but I doubt she “Forced” her self upon him. She didn’t ruin him for life. She just taught him how to be immoral and most boys would find that an easy lesson to learn.

There are not many 16 year-old boys, even from the best of families that would say “No thanks you’re not my type” to any female who was interested.

Sounds like you're inclined to give her a pass. If it was your underage son would you be so sanguine about it?

Per the article:
Denise Harvey, 47, was convicted in 2008 of five counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, a boy who was on her son’s baseball team. She is wanted in the U.S., where she is facing a 30-year prison sentence.

People don't get thirty years in the Big House for nothing.

Hmmm, 30 years. What does that convert to in Canada, 10 years?

The FUN POLICE (the unholy alliance of fun-hating Biblethumpers and man-hating feminists) have done more to terrorize our youth than any Muslim psychos. Actually, they have a lot in common.

A 16 year old boy having sex with a woman? Oh! The horror!

Had they been same sex she’d have been a celebrity in both countries.

granted refugee status in Canada

Why would Canada do that? Didn't realize their standards are in the sewer.

I think the age of consent might be 16 in Canada.

LOL! At 16, I'd have hit it!

And not regretted it, barring the odd paternity suit (unlikely, given the age of the hitee).

It was 13 until about 5 years ago give or take a year then they raised it to 16.

Makes sense that they would grant refugee status to someone who had commuted an act that isn’t a crime under Canadian law.

Sounds like a hormone problem to me.

The boy was 16 and his rising hormone level was raging.

The 47 year woman had falling hormone levels but was probably on replacement therapy, which made her really, really horny.
