Coon, who specialized in child-protection law, was accused back in September 2013 of molesting a young Ottawa girl. The police theory is that the defence lawyer molested the girl, told her he loved her and to keep it a secret.

Coon, then 49, denied the accusations in a September 2013 police interview and say he took a polygraph in November 2013. Ottawa police then called Coon and asked him to turn himself in on charges of sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching.

But instead of turning himself into police, Coon got a work permit and went to Cambodia where he got a job as a schoolteacher...[continued] https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/0211-coon

Did he used to work at Learning Jungle International School in TK? I can verify that they do not require background checks and there are a few whore mongerers that work there.

"As of May 28th, 2018, Coon is still on the Ottawa police website as one of their most wanted fugitives"
Five years on the run
And the Ottawa police cannot find out that he is in Cambodia > then find out he is teaching kids > then get him dragged back home ??? years ago.


I would have thought it would be pretty easy to do a simply search of the international immigration/flight/banking/etc records that cops have at their fingertips these days.

If you have the right legal advice you can delay and obfuscate tracking, challenge warrants and so on. Many counriesjust wait for the offender to come home and grab them at the airport. After all, while he is in Cambodia Canadian kids are safe and that, i am afraid, is the attitude of governments worldwide
