RCMP officer in sex assault interrogation video sued for punitive damages

The woman at the centre of a disturbing video, recorded while she was reporting a sexual assault in Kelowna in 2012, is suing the RCMP officer who interrogated her.

The case stems from then-Const. Kent Hall’s interrogation of the woman who was just 17 at the time. In the interview video obtained by APTN News, the officer asks the woman if she was “turned on” during the alleged assault.

A statement of claim filed in Kelowna court Friday names Hall, a Kelowna RCMP officer with a previous criminal conviction, according to documents obtained exclusively by APTN.

“Hall interrogates the Plaintiff in the most malicious, degrading and threatening manner,” the claim reads in part. “Hall subjected the Plaintiff to a brutal, degrading and dehumanizing interrogation for over two hours.”
