One victim became introverted, while another remains afraid of being outside at night.
B.C. Supreme Court Justice Hope Hyslop reread parts of victim impact statements Wednesday by women who fought off sexual assaults by Michael McLean in May this year.
"Mr. McLean should hear what he did to these women when he attacked them,' Hyslop said. "The sentencing hearing is not just about them."
Hyslop sentenced McLean to 15 months in prison on three counts of sexual assault. That time comes in addition to the 4.5 month's he's spent in custody.
Once released, McLean will spend three years serving probation, including a curfew restricting him to home in the evenings.
A psychiatrist deemed the 35-year-old First Nations man a moderate to elevated risk of reoffending. He suffers from fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.
McLean turned himself in hours after the third of three random attacks. In each case, women were able to fight him off.
In addition to sending a message about the seriousness of the attacks, Hyslop said the time will give McLean a chance at rehabilitation.
"Mr. McLean needs opportunity for rehabilitation, which he's anxious to pursue."
