Canadian writer charged with child assault in Georgia, USA

WSB-TV2 Atlanta reports a comics writer from Canada (who originally immigrated from Congo) was arrested on charges of child sexual assault:
A popular comic book author from Canada who came to metro Atlanta for a wedding, ended up in handcuffs accused of felony child cruelty after police say he inappropriately touched a child.

Body Ngoy, 52
, went before a judge Monday over something his attorney called one big mistake. [...]

Braselton police said it was no accident. They say the person Ngoy locked lips with was a child, and was Ngoy subsequently arrested.

He now faces serious charges
.
His lawyer, and the news station, appear to be trying to downplay this all as a mere accident, because:
He told the judge Ngoy has never been in trouble and is a pillar of the community in Canada.

“He’s a prolific writer of comic books as it relates to building up the African American community,” Patterson said. “That’s why we’re asking the court to grant him a bond of $5,000.”

The judge granted Ngoy that bond. She ordered him to stay away from the victim and stay away from Chateau Elan.
What is this? More political correctness in motion, based on the writer's racial background? That alone is not reason to grant him bail for release. It has to be based on personality. Now, his career could stand to face ruin based on the severe charge filed against him. A terrible shame that once again, we have here a #MeToo form of incident that puts another stain on the comics medium as a result.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
