Serial rapist Rene Bourdon may die behind bars, because of a court decision this week in Kingston, Ontario. Bourdon – who incapacitates women with drugs, then rapes them while they are unconscious – was declared a dangerous offender and sentenced to an indeterminate period in custody. It means he can be held in prison until he is considered no longer a danger. Dangerous offenders comprise a tiny percentage of convicted criminals. Few are ever released. Most die in custody.
The National Parole Board’s file on rapist Rene Bourdon (inset) is a growing inventory of lies. Fuelled by pornography, Bourdon uses the Internet to troll for women he can drug and assault. Cancrime introduced him recently, with this post about his latest violation of release conditions. The 31-page record of National Parole Board decisions (available after the jump) catalogues his repeated refusals to follow rules meant to curb his sexual deviancy.
Rapist Rene Bourdon (inset) was considered so dangerous when he was sentenced in North Bay in 2003 for attacks on three women that a judge imposed one of the most restrictive legal leashes available to rein in a sex offender’s deviancy – short of a life sentence in prison. But as Bourdon’s case has progressed, it’s clear there’s a significant loophole in the law that he’s exploiting.
