Disgraced former junior hockey coach Graham James was sentenced March 20th to two years in prison for sexually assaulting two of his players. Former NHL star Theo Fleury and his cousin, Todd Holt, were not in court for the sentencing in Winnipeg. But Holt told a news conference in Cochrane, Alberta that the sentence was a travesty. He later broke down when calling on Canadians to join him and his cousin in pushing for change to ensure real justice for victims of sexual abuse. (James pleaded guilty in 1997 to sexually abusing two other players, including former NHLer Sheldon Kennedy, and was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison.)
