TORONTO - Mayor Rob Ford urged a judge to free a convicted drug dealer who had threatened to kill the mayor after bursting into his home, QMI Agency has learned.
The mayor and his sister, Kathy Ford, "are generous and forgiving in not wanting (her ex-boyfriend) Scott MacIntyre to go to jail," stated Justice Paul French at the sentencing hearing on June 12, 2012.
The comment is contained in a court transcript of the proceeding.
QMI Agency initially obtained court documents which revealed stunning details about the mayor's frightening run-in with MacIntyre. The most recent transcript contains details about MacIntyre's sentencing hearing.
MacIntyre was sentenced in June 2012 to five months in addition to time already served for uttering death threats, possession and attempting to break a court order. He has since been released.
At the hearing, MacIntyre's lawyer, Sam Boutzouvis, said the mayor "does not fear" MacIntyre but still wanted him barred from being within 500 metres of Ford's address or any location where the the mayor is likely to be.
Kathy Ford wanted to have further contact and communication with the 45-year-old addict "with a written revocable consent," so that she could assist with his drug counselling.
