The lawyer for Dave Hilton Junior said his client put up a good fight -- even though he was found guilty on March 16th of sexually-abusing two young girls over a three-year period. A Quebec court rejected lawyer Paul Skolnik's request that Hilton be freed on bail so he could defend his super middleweight boxing title. Skolnik said the 37-year-old boxer did his best to defend himself against nine sex-related charges. (Hilton was sentenced to seven years in prison on May 9th.)
