Dangerous offender hearing begins for convicted sexual predator Lance Blanchard

A dangerous offender hearing begins Monday for a man convicted in 2016 of the violent sexual assault of an Indigenous woman in an Edmonton apartment.

Lance Blanchard was found guilty of aggravated assault, aggravated sexual assault, kidnapping, forcible confinement, possession of a weapon and making a death threat in relation to the 2014 attack on the woman, who CBC refers to using the pseudonym Angela Cardinal. 

The case sparked outrage, and two reviews were ordered by Alberta Justice when CBC News found Cardinal was incarcerated during her testimony at Blanchard’s preliminary hearing.

Cardinal, 28, died months later in an unrelated shooting. 

In August, Blanchard lost a bid for a mistrial. 

The Crown applied for Blanchard to be declared a dangerous offender, a term reserved for Canada’s most violent

Crown seeks dangerous offender status for serial rapist

Serial rapist Charles Henry Desjarlais will undergo a psychiatric assessment to determine if he qualifies for a dangerous offender label.

Crown prosecutor Karuna Ramakrishnan on Friday asked for the assessment, which could result in an application for Desjarlais to be locked up indefinitely.

Ramakrishnan sought the assessment after provincial court Judge John Bascom denied her application to adjourn the Crown’s request to March.

Ramakrishnan had sought a delay so a doctor who performed a pre-sentencing assessment on Desjarlais over a previous sexual assault, who isn’t available for much of the next two months, could prepare the report.

But defence counsel Mitch Stephensen said his client was opposed to delaying being tested by staff at the Southern Alberta Forensic Psychiatry Centre (SAFPC).

“Mr. Desjarlais has been co-operative all along with respect to the anticipated dangerous offender application, but he opposes this delay,” Stephensen told Bascom.

“SAFPC is prepared to do the report and another doctor could be

Disabled sex offender snared by pedophile hunters spared jail (VIDEO)

Mark Presley, 49, intended to meet the teen at Blackpool pier when he was confronted by anti-pedophile vigilantes ‘The Innocence Keepers’ in October, last year. The group had been posing as the 13-year-old “Samantha” on Facebook and had asked Presley to carry a stick of rock so he could be identified on the pier.

The group had also pretended to be a number of other underage children on social media who which Presley was also interacting with, including another fake 13-year-old girl named “Katie”.

Upon being confronted by The Innocence Keepers, Presley “realized he had been stung [and he] he zipped down his jacket to flash his disability card,” the group said.

Judge Andrew Woolman said there were “no real victims” in the case. He added that Presley had suffered bullying which had made him “a victim himself,” according to the Daily Mail.

Woolman added that Presley “is desperate for any company” and “is

Superior Court Report Possible life sentence for female sex offender

SOUTH BEND — A former Long Beach woman with a history of sexually abusing a developmentally disabled family member is likely to receive a life sentence at her Jan. 26 hearing.

Victoria Suzanna Jackson, also known as Victoria Milligan, 23, pleaded guilty to first-degree incest and second-degree assault with a sexual motivation in Pacific County Superior Court on Jan. 5.

Prosecutor Mark McClain said in a press release that it was a “particularly troubling” case. He is asking that Jackson receive a life sentence under the state’s Indeterminate Sentence Review Board because it was not the first time she had abused the victim, who is an adult.

“While she did not physically assault her (victim), he was incapable of consent in the same way someone may be too intoxicated to consent and as such committed a sex offense,” McClain

At the beginning of this year, the Polish Ministry of Justice unveiled a publicly accessible online registry of sex offenders convicted of abusing children up to 15 years of age.

However, the list contains fewer than 800 out of several thousand known sexual predators in the country – and among those exclusions are 56 priests.

Among the criminals whose names, addresses, and photos are not in the registry:
