|March 20, 2014. Ontario Court Judge Brent Knazan came into court Thursday to announce he had received a letter from a stranger making the startling allegation the complaint he is hearing “is fraudulent, or worse.”|
According to the letter, parts of which the judge read aloud in open court, the person claimed to be a former acquaintance of the three complainants and alleges they “conspired, in my presence, to fabricate a criminal harassment complaint” against Mr. Elliott. The person also alleged the conspiracy extends “to the ministry of the attorney-general,” information relayed in the summer of 2012 by two of the complainants’ friends. Judge Knazan said the letter, which he received Tuesday, was signed and provided contact information.

Elliott's lawyer, Chris Murphy
|When the case previously adjourned, Ms. Guthrie was in mid-cross-examination by Chris Murphy, Mr. Elliott’s lawyer. Mr. Murphy had questioned her at length about a meeting in the summer of 2012, when a group of people, including the other complainants and a couple of their friends, gathered to decide, as she put it once, “how as a community we could respond to predatory and harassing behaviour of men”, including allegedly Mr. Elliott, on Twitter.|
One of the friends whom Ms. Guthrie identified as being at the meeting is one of the two named in the letter and alleged by the writer to be knowledgeable about the purported conspiracy. When the meeting ended, Mr. Murphy alleged in January, the attendees “had a plan to deal with Mr. Elliott … Each of them had a role.”
|The three women who accused Elliott “convened a meeting of friends to discuss how Elliott should be publicly shamed; they bombarded their followers with furious tweets and retweets about him (including a grotesque suggestion from someone pretending she was a 13-year-old that he was a pedophile)"|
At one point, he told the judge, “It may be that at that meeting, a conspiracy to commit a criminal offence took place — to criminally harass Mr. Elliott, to commit mischief and interfere with his ability to enjoy Twitter.”
|After a better appreciation of the recent court decision exonerating Gregory Elliott one item of the judgment fairly leaps right out.|
"In his 86-page decision, Knazan concluded that the evidence against Elliott did not meet the threshold for criminal harassment."
|"The judge said he believed the women felt they were being harassed, but that it was not “objectively reasonable” for them to fear for their safety. |
He said Guthrie participated in an online campaign to accuse Elliott of sexual assault, and that he didn’t contact her after she told him to stop. In regards to Reilly, Knazan said her testimony wasn’t strong enough to prove she was fearful of Elliott."
So our fearfilled "victim" was, in fact, the aggressor, according to the judge. Why then is Stephanie Guthrie NOT criminally charged for making a fraudulent police report? Specifically she is guilty of public mischief.
