Sex abuser declared dangerous offender for attacks on his children

WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg father who subjected his daughters to years of sadistic sexual abuse showed no emotion as he was declared a dangerous offender and sentenced to an indefinite prison term.

The 49-year-old man pleaded guilty to sexual assault, making child pornography and invitation to sexual touching.

Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Brenda Keyser found there was no reasonable possibility his risk could eventually be controlled in the community.

The case broke open in August 2011 after one of the girls went to RCMP to disclose what her father had done to her.

Winnipeg police then interviewed another daughter and moved to search the man’s home, finding the largest collection of child pornography ever seen in Manitoba, including more than 2,600 items relating to the victims.

The Crown played portions of the seized video evidence at a hearing closed to the public last year.

In one of them, the father talks about getting angry at the victims, telling them: “I’m not trying to rape you, I’m trying to make love to you,” according to Keyser’s decision.

“That’s why I take my anger out on you guys,” he told them. “Being alone too doesn’t help and it bottles up. Then you come over and it triggers and you get it all.”

In 1994, the father pleaded guilty to molesting a young boy, the son of his then-common-law partner, and was handed three years of probation.

The abuse he inflicted on that child mirrors, but in a much smaller way, what he did to the girls.

Dr. Sharon Cooper testified the children were subjected to years of sadistic sexual abuse and face increased odds of chronic ill health and early death, a loss of faith and spiritual hope and a lifetime of psychological and emotional dysfunction.
