Moussa Sidimé, a Longueuil, Que., man who pleaded guilty in the 2010 death of his teenage daughter, was sentenced today to 60 more days in jail and then probation of two years.
Sidimé, 74, pleaded guilty to manslaughter after slapping his 13-year-old, Nouténé, so hard that an artery in her brain ruptured.
His remaining children said putting their father behind bars would be doing the family more harm than good.
A criminologist who took the stand agreed, noting Sidimé had no recorded history of violence.

You can bet if he is a Muzzie that it isn’t the first time he’s been violent.
More senseless violence among the Amish.
With good behaviour, he’ll be out in 40 days. (Just kidding — or am I?)
After all, he is REALLY sorry.
Actually, he’s out now. He gets to serve his sentence on weekends.
Unfortunately, with good behaviour he could get out in 20.
It was an honor slap.
men shouldn’t be fathering at that age....they’re too old to be good fathers...being a good father means having patience, and stamina, and compassion and exuberance....
60 days, wow
In this country you might get off by saying cultural differences if you are an illegal or Muslim, heck some judge might throw you in the clink for 30 days for rape, but we have so many bad judges the bad ones really stand out.
Serving your sentence on weekends sounds like the most retarded thing I ever hard.
How about throwing them in jail 9-5 and paying them?
Oh Canada....our homo and Sharia land....
hmmmm. She loses 70 years of her life and he gets 60 days! That’s Justice!
And how does one support children at that age?
“no recorded history of violence”
No one does, until they commit a crime.
Looks like the towelheads are winning.
Should have gotten more time.
But it would be difficult to convict him of much more severe charges.
Murder can't apply, because that requires intent, even if only momentarily, to kill. Nobody tries to kill a more or less grown person by slapping her.
So the maximum charge that could probably stick is manslaughter, of which he was duly convicted.
A slap just isn't an efficient mechanism to transfer energy. Not to mention that most guys in their 70s aren't capable of hitting all that hard.
I wonder if she may have had some sort of embolism or other problem that interacted with the slap to cause her death.
I met with Member of parliament yesterday, and they are working on things like this, they just did a quiet 10% cut to all government agencies and doing more. Now we won’t get arrested for defending ourselves in our homes etc either.
Stuff like this is not indicative of the country as a whole just like I don’t judge the US off some nutjobs.
Of course I think you were probably just joking anyways.
I should think that such qualities as patience and compassion might actually be found more often among older fathers.
