A former Cowichan Valley physiotherapist will not be spending any time in jail after being convicted of seven counts of sexual assault.

Campbell Crichton was given a conditional two year sentence with two years probation this morning in Duncan Supreme Court…after being found guilty in November.

He will serve his punishment in the community and will have to return to court in a year to review the sentence. Michelle Daneliuk speaks for the Defence.

The Crown recommended two years behind bars with two years probation…while the Defence wanted anywhere from one year to two served in the public. The charges stem back to 1996 and involve seven women.
