Police Found Guilty of Using Victim as "Rape Bait"
A Toronto Court awarded $149,000 to a female victim, know only as "Jane Doe", who claimed that the Toronto police were negligent in failing to warn women that there was a serial rapist living in their neighborhood. "Doe" and several other women accused police officials of using them as "rape bait" in order to catch Paul Callow, who was caught in 1986 following the rape of 20 women, including "Jane Doe."
