Ray Collingham, a Canadian man who was charged with several counts of sexual misconduct with a child and later aquitted, is now attempting to sue the Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Service for carrying out a "negligent investigation" that cost him his reputation, The Toronto Sun reports.

Collingham said the lawsuit is not about the money but is to try to ensure police follow protocol when interviewing child witnesses so that nobody else will ever have to endure what he endured: temporary incarceration, a public trial, front-page stories about the trial including his photo, public incrimination and then trying to rebuild a shattered life.

Originally, Collingham was accused of sexually abusing a neighbor's child when the boy's mother found incriminating Facebook messages between the man and her son. Police later discovered that the mother had hacked into Collingham's account and planted the messages.

    Yeah but the mother should also go to prison for setting it up . That will be with him the rest of his life . People still aren't going to trust him no matter what or how he got off . There will always be that doubt .

    Considering the victim was not a child but a 16 yr old young man and the hacking revealed a "previous correspondence" between the offender and the young person - not the diatribe and later faux conversation orchestrated by the mother- I think you should sue so the truth comes out. I believe this police service took a video statement from the young man (not child) and he gave further evidence to the service (Durham Region) actually "in charge" of the investigation and laying of the charge, arrest and detention. Peterborough canvassed the possibility of an exploitation, which led to disclosure of offences in another jurisdiction. What is great about the civil case is that all of the school records of the boy, credit card transactions of accused, emails, phone records, banking records are now subject to reverse disclosure in a civil matter. Electronic information never dies. It just sleeps until it becomes necessary to acquire-LOL. The other service dropped the ball in not securing this information to prove out the charge.

    It IS all about the money, or it wouldnt be 5 million dollars. And you people need to get the whole story here. This man makes very stong accusations NEVER proven in court about this woman. These words are all "his opinion" not FACTS. Thaking the words of a man charged with being a pedofile as the gospal and not knowing the court finding etc and trial records is WRONG. Most of what this man posts as "his opinion" is factually WRONG. Maybe first get all the facts before you judge this woman and the "alledged" things this man chose to say about her. If it wernt for the fact he didnt post a name this could be considered slander

    Raymond Collingham, was arrested on a Canada-wide warrant on July 09, 2007. The allegations against him arose from a homophobic father, a disturbed mother, manipulated emails and an inexperienced police officer. Ray was held in custody for 4 days while only being fed once and interrogated for a horrifying crime he did not commit. He was then boarded on a plane in hand cuffs and shackles and flown across the country where he was stripped of his clothes and threatened by a police officer while he stood naked and afraid. Ray was detained in a range with 32 other inmates where he feared for his life until he was released on a cash bail of $5000. It would take two years before Ray could clear his name in a court of law and much longer than that to find the strength to start putting his life back together. A picture of Ray was spread on the front page of what seemed like every newspaper across Canada, with a title that similar to “Potential Child Molester.” His partner was refused as surety and he was not given permission to go back to his home province. He was banned from Gymnastics and his coaching certificates were marked nil and void. He lost his job, his home, his pets, his dignity and his pride.

He was banned from Gymnastics and his coaching certificates were marked nil and void. He lost his job, his home, his pets, his dignity and his pride.
    We as citizens are expected to conduct ourselves in an appropriate manner, following the laws and regulations that our police officers enforce or we will face consequences. Our expectations for the police should be held in the same regard. In Ray's case those expectations were not met and it cost him his reputation. I do not know the dollar amount that a person's quality of life is worth, but what I do know is that he has a right to try and regain what was stolen from him. Emails are not sufficient enough evidence to warrant an arrest and in most cases they are not considered enough to even warrant an investigation. Ask yourself, have you ever forgot to sign out of your email account? How many people live with you? Who visited your house that day? and more importantly, did you give enough thought to your security questions and/or passwords? What if someone gets into your account and writes things on your behalf? Wouldn't you want the opportunity to explain? Neither Ray or his partner were questioned before his arrest. He was assumed guilty and processed as such.
    In Canadian law, the accused are to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. It is not a police officers job to prosecute someone based on an assumption. It is however, their job to take complaints and investigate. The gathering of legitimate evidence in an investigation is important to avoid overwhelming the justice system with an enormous amount of people who are accused of something they did not commit. For two years Ray was forced to live in depression, worry and wondered what was to become of him. He lost respect and was looked at suspiciously by all. Ray Collingham taught children for over 20 years and he was just trying to his job. The Peterborough police didn't stop for a moment to make sure the officer was doing his and he was interrogated for hours trying to get him to admit guilt. Will they admit theirs?

    This is so ridiculous, it makes me sick to read these opions of people who read one line in an article "mom hacked into accounts". Come on, just like the Casey Anthony case there was sufficient evidence to show the child was murdred yet the mom gets off. Yet thousands of people and Casey herself knows she is guilty. This guy knows he is guilty and continues these rants to prove his innocence because he has to try really hard to clear the bad name he brought on himself and continues to do so until this day. I would love to see some close family or friends show all the crap that he has done since his aquittal that would show how guilty he really is. It's pathetic, and if you know what I'm talking about, and he knows what I'm talking about, this whole website would be flooded with rants against this man and not the mom or the victim. He needs to stop playing victim here, step it up, go far far away, change his name (oh wait I think he already tried to do that..or has) and leave this awful situation alone. Seriously if I was aquitted of a serious charge like this, I think I would try to move on, without publishing everything all over again in the paper and making a total ass of myself.

Karma is a "b*&$h" and will come back and bite you in the ass. The only thing I agree with is that the Mom should have not hacked into anything and let the police do their job, which they did very well, but unfortunatley lost in this case. As I read these comments and see the "the poor guy, OMG, he should just be able to get on with his life" , well what about the child who is the real victim? When does he get to get on with his life and stop having to deal with this crap? There is so much more to this story and situation that is not being told because it is all one sided. Good thing this young man (victim) has a strong support system, or who knows what he might do. So until you have actually spoke to the victim and heard his chain of events, you would see a whole new side of Ray Collingham! Move along and go hug your children and hope that this never happens to them.

    "Thousands of people know Casey Anthony is guilty." Can you say this? There was evidence that the child was murdered and that Casey was involved but there was not enough evidence to prove she was the killer and that is why she was acquited. Similar to a case in Kansas circa 1904 where a man was executed for murder. He left behind a widow and three baby girls. Nobody would help them in times of need because "They're the family of a killer, let them suffer." Guess what? Four years after he was executed, his "victim" was discovered living in a remote town 400 miles away. He was convicted for exactly the same reason as the Casey Anthony case: The News Media had already decided that he was guilty and published slanted stories pointing toward his guilt but nothing pointing toward his innocence. That is the problem with letting the News Media in on cases like this: They publish what they want the public to hear but not the rest. This is where freedom of the press does not apply-it was intended to prevent the media from being harrassed and jailed for speaking out against the Government, not to let them print what they want whenever they want regardless of the circumstances.

    He should also sue the newspaper for printing front page stories about the trial including his photo and implicating him. This is a very good example of a case where freedom of the press does not apply and the news media should be held 100% accountable and the names and addresses of the reporters who printed the story should be published on the front page as part of punishment. The original intent of freedom of the press was to prevent the news media from being harrassed and jailed for printing stories speaking out against the Government, not to allow them to print outright false stories that ruin an innocent's life and reputation.

    If the man was not guilty, then he should be compensated for the time he had to spend defending himself, and the money he had to spend on defending himself, and compensated for damage to his character.
    This man gets only one life, and it is ruined until he grows a bear, shaves his head, and moves to a far off country. and he was innocent.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that have brought up valid points about suing the police. I am suing because the police were negligent in investigating my case. If my case was investigated prior to my arrest I would not have been arrested and bythen it was too late. Then the system takes you on this journey. The paper unfortunately, cannot tell the whole story either.

    My human rights were violated while incarcerated as well. I was fed once while in jail in Smithers BC. I lost 9 lbs. I was not taken to see a Justice of the Peace until 7 days after my arrest. By law I am suppose to see a JP within 24 hours, so the courts know who is in costody and why. I was not allowed to shower or brush my teeth and was illegally interrogated for 6 hours. The crown was thinking about dismissing the case, but I said no, I want this to go to trial so I can prove my innocence.

    As for the mother, you have no idea how much I want to sue her. But if I sue her it will cost thousands and thousands of dollars and I will not get any money back from her, even just to pay my lawyers. The satisfaction of me suing her would be great, but I could not afford to do it just for doing it.

    She broke laws, however, did she not? Is she being perused for them?

    And, thank you for stopping by and sharing your story personally. The officers should be made aware of the impact of "flying by the seat of their pants" on the people they are accusing. They have the power to destroy innocent lives without a trial. They should not be wielding this power lightly.

    Your statement of claim suggest the officer was not so much negligent but quite adept at interrogating a "child" and forcing him to disclose. That is a fantastic feat for an incompetent police officer. To get a 16 year old male to spill out a ritual pattern of grooming and abuse to a police officer where the substance of which was re-visited confirmed and expanded upon with further information is such a way that was not hyperbolic but textbook grooming. Wow, this inexperienced officer you suggest is complicit in your incarceration appears to be quite savvy. What you suggest is a miracle. This teenager was forced to disclose a false allegation by an officer who was not even in charge of the investigation and gave the statement to another service as it was theirs.

The contradictions you present are so glaringly obvious I am surprised the media has not in their infinite interest seen the obvious. You are hiding in plain sight... I can't wait to read the outcome of this one!!!

    Where does this man go to recover his character?

    He has been ruined and damaged by these charges. He has become a pariah. His reputation needs to be restored. Even if he loses the lawsuit he must fight to remove the stain.

    If he didn't do it hell yes( SHOW ME THE MONEY). The police cant go around arresting people without proof. Here say is not proof.

    I disagree. They can arrest without proof but they cannot hold indefinately without a trial. More importantly, they should not be allowed to let the news media know about cases like this until they are closed.

    Hell, yeah he should. That kind of reputation you can never escape. He should sue the mother too and take her house. What a complete bitch. Before police act they should finish the investigation.

    Sexual misconduct with any child will raise the hackles of anyone, even police officers. But they are supposed to be professional and assume the man is innocent until proven guilty. This arrest record will follow this man the rest of his life so yes, sue the bastards and while he's at it, he should sue the neighbor woman too!
