“He has a pretty horrendous history”

24 Mar ’08

From CTV:

Police arrested Bateman hours later and charged him with two counts of threatening death and one count of breaching his probation.

“We know he has a pretty horrendous history,” said Const. Gerry Doherty, who screens and monitors high-risk offenders released into the community.

“I feel better that he is off the street.”

Bateman has a criminal record that spans more than 30 years. It includes violent sex attacks on children accompanied by torture and humiliation.

In 1991, Bateman received an eight-year sentence for repeated violent assaults on a Belleville, Ont. girl that included an attempt to rape the nine-year-old with a screwdriver.

Excuse me – probation?
