Man could be labeled a dangerous offender

Array

A man convicted of sexual assault will have a dangerous offender hearing next year.

Jesse Toews, 26, appeared in Red Deer’s Court of Queens Bench last week to learn that his hearing will go ahead next year.

The hearing will be held Jan 10-Feb. 17, 2012.

To proceed with a dangerous offender hearing the crown has to make an application and consent has to be given by the deputy attorney general.

Earlier this year, Toews was supposed to undergo a psychiatric assessment to determine whether or not he is considered a dangerous or long-term offender.

Meanwhile, the sexual assault Toews was convicted for took place on July 29, 2009 near a north end grocery store at about 10 a.m.

The victim, a woman who was then in her late 70s, was walking through a wooded area west of the Save On Foods in the 5300 block of 67 St. when a male grabbed her from behind and pulled her to the ground where she was sexually and physically assaulted.

After the attack, the woman was able to make it to the store and was assisted by employees who called the police and EMS.

RCMP later released a photo of Toews to the public asking for assistance in locating him in connection with the alleged crime.

In late August of 2009, Toews turned himself into police.

His trial was held earlier this year.
