Gilbert Rozon is the founder and director of the “Just for Laughs” comedy festival in Montreal. He is 44 years old, married and the father of three young children. On February 17, 1998, Rozon encounters K.C., nineteen years old, during a fundraising evening at the Manoir Rouville where K.C. is working as a croupière. They talk about her interests and where she would like to work. Rozon offers to help her get started. In K.C.’s words:

“Before the assault he was kind. He wanted to know what I wanted to do. He gave me his telephone number. He told me that he would offer me a job. He said he had many contacts. I was happy that such a well-connected person was interested in me, a little black-jack croupière.”
