BARRIE, Ont. — A 21-year old woman says she is devastated after the octogenarian she accused of kidnapping her in a terrifying incident walked out of court a free man on Monday.

Harold George Dean, 86, of Collingwood, Ont., hobbled out of court after the Crown agreed to drop a kidnapping charge in exchange for a peace bond which prohibits him from having contact with the woman.

Under the terms of the bond, the Crown also agreed to drop charges of kidnapping and sexual assault in a separate incident involving another woman. Dean is not allowed to have contact with that woman, either.
