A hockey coach in Canada is serving 15 days in jail after tripping a 13-year-old member of the opposing team. Coach Martin Tremblay at first said it was an accident, but later admitted his guilt after a video showed him sweeping the leg of the teen. The boy broke his wrist as a result of the trip.

Judge Patrick Chen said he was not sure that the time served in the community was enough of a punishment and noted: "Society will not tolerate the assault of children by adults."

Should this man be allowed to coach again?
