In today’s report we sit down to interview Counter Signal journalist and former Rebel News reporter Keean Bexte about the conviction of his violent attacker Jessica Simpson, formerly known as Jonathan Yaniv.
Simpson, a controversial self-proclaimed human rights advocate who identifies as a lesbian transgender woman, assaulted Bexte in January 2020 while he was practicing journalism for Rebel News. The brazen attack took place outside of the Surrey Provincial Courthouse where Simpson had to appear due to a prohibited weapons charges.
On May 25, Simpson was found guilty of assaulting Bexte and received the lenient sentence of a conditional discharge with 14 months probation and no criminal record or jail time, despite this being the second criminal offence Simpson was found guilty of committing.
