SAINT JOHN, N.B. - Donnie Snook, a former municipal politician and youth worker in New Brunswick, said Friday he can't explain why, as a victim of child sex abuse himself, he sexually assaulted and made pornographic images of boys over a 12-year span.
Snook addressed provincial court in Saint John at his sentencing hearing, apologizing for the years of "sadness and darkness" he created in the lives of 17 young kids.
"I stand before you ashamed of my actions," said Snook, 41.
"If anyone should have known better, it was me."
