39-year-old Daniel Michael Perrault is at a high-risk to re-offend.

He has been serving a sentence at Kent maximum security prison. While in prison, he has refused treatment and is also on methadone.

Over the past 22 years, Perrault has stomped a man to death, raped a woman after escaping from prison and robbed a shopkeeper while released on parole



I don't think anything highlights how pathetic our justice system is than this story. Seriously, what the F does someone need to do to be kept behind bars? A prisoner can refuse treatment? wow. Stomped someone to death, escaped prison to commit a rape, gets out on parole and robs a store... but, he's now released? Unbelievable.

I believe the thinking is that if they let them out under parole, the police can continue to monitor them. If they simply let them finish their sentence, they can no longer be monitored closely.

He was already out on parole and proceeded to rob a store...
He escaped from prison to commit a rape...

The only way that guy should be monitored is behind bars.

While treatment can only be forced if it's a condition of his sentence (why wasn't it?) the rest is an indication certainly he should have more time added to his original conviction. If that wasn't the case, then I'd be particularly disappointed, but it's hard to tell since the article mentions nothing about the details of why he was in jail to begin with, what his sentence was at that point, when the other instances occurred and if he did get extra time as a result.

Before anyone jumps on my post, they do state a high-risk to re-offend so I'd prefer something better be mandated as a part of his rehabilitation. It doesn't suggest the following is likely, but if the incidents mentioned happened in, say, the first 10 years of the 22 mentioned, then it is possible he's improved as a part of his incarceration.

There's something in "high risk repeat" and "released" that just don't work for me. Especially in seeing the violent nature of his crimes ("stomped to death" is another tough one for me to swallow in considering that he's not behind bars).

Better believe if I was at the receiving end of this guy's "to do" list after his rap sheet and subsequent release, there'd be some 'splainin' to do. Like to a lawyer.

Honestly, our streets should be safe and allowing these guys to wander free doesn't really support that (at all). If you refuse to receive treatment then you should be refused release until those conditons are met. Why do these guys get options??

Seriously hoping for some vigilante justice . I know this is so wrong on my part but how in the FRAK is this guy still breathing ? The Canadian justice system is second only to America in futility ! Everyday I am becoming more disgusted in our country.

Sad thing is there are other, more lenient countries than Canada.

The problem with 'soft' justice like this is where's the deterrent? Oh, so I can go out, rape and murder and what, spend a year or two in a minimum security prison then get out on parol? Cool, I'll take that with a side order of fries, I mean why not, it's not like I'll get the death sentence or anything... See my point?

If you take a life unjustly then your life should be forfeit, seems fair to me...

If he had been convicted of murder, he would not be getting out because the only punishment for committing first or second degree murder in Canada is life imprisonment - it is a mandatory minimum sentence and there is no other possible sentence.

While he would be eligible to apply for parole at some point even if sentenced to life, with this sort of an assessment of danger to the public he would never be released - think Clifford Olsen, Paul Bernardo, Robert Pickton, etc.

There are laws and procedures to designate an accused as a dangerous or long term offender as set out in Part XXIV of the Criminal Code. In that case an indeterminate sentence can be imposed (these designations do not apply to murderers because they are already serving what amounts to an indeterminate sentence) and the dangerous or long term offender remains incarcerated until he is no longer considered a danger. The Supreme Court of Canada has found such indeterminate sentences to not be in violation of the Charter. In the facts here a Dangerous Offender desigantion would have been the most likely process. In this case applications have not been brought at his prior trials to so designate him.

A Crown attorney may present a dangerous offender application after an offender has been found guilty, but before sentencing. However, if new evidence comes to light, an application can be made up to six months after sentencing.

The initial long-term offender application must be submitted before sentencing. It cannot therefore be submitted once the offender has begun serving his or her sentence. However, a long-term offender application that has been converted from a dangerous offender application by the court may be submitted after sentencing.

For more detail see the link noted below:

The Dangerous Offender and Long-Term Offender Regime


Purpose of the Regime


The provisions applicable to offenders presenting a high risk of recidivism are set out in Part XXIV of the Criminal Code (the Code). It is important to note that these rules apply at the sentencing stage on application by the prosecutor after conviction.


The primary objective of this regime is thus to protect the public from offenders who have committed serious sexual or violent offences (except murder) and continue to pose a threat to society. A very high proportion of these criminals have committed sexual offences.


Within this very limited group, dangerous offenders are, by definition, considered more likely to reoffend than are long-term offenders. Thus, a long-term offender could, after being sentenced to a term of imprisonment of two years or more, be released under the conditions of a long-term supervision order; by contrast, unless a judge directs otherwise, a dangerous offender will have to serve a prison sentence of indeterminate length.

^ He was still a youth when he stomped the old man to death. He was an adult when he committed the rape and the robbery though.

Nonetheless of how the facts of the case played out a very dangerous highly likely to re-offend person is about to be walking our streets. Go justice system!

Perrault was tried as an adult in that death and was convicted of manslaughter (not murder). He was sentenced to three years.

One possibility is for Crown make an application to have the court issue a Section 810 recognizance order, which would allow the offender to remain under supervision and conditions for a year even after completing his sentence as occurred with the Swirl Face pedophile, Christopher Neil, who returned to Canada after five years in a Thailand prison.

It would be hard to say exactly but if he is in fact a sexual sadist as is being reported then this would be the sort of treatment regime that Corrections Canada might undertake.
http://www.csc-scc.g...hil09-eng.shtml

As I understand it treatment has a low rate of success in any event.

One of the most infamous sexual sadists was Clifford Olson - at his 2006 parole hearing, the parole board was told that psychiatric assessments found him to be a sexual sadist with narcissistic tendencies who feels no remorse for his victims or their families.

Chances are he will re-offend within the year and spend the rest of his natural life in jail .. too bad for the one family that is cursed by living thru his "final offense" .. if it were me, I would now blame the "powers that be" that allow this cretin back into open society for any future crime he commits ..

All this from a a very forgiving person .. I just refuse to condone any type of rape or child abuse .. murder is killing a person .. rape is killing a soul .. child abuse is killing a future .. the disparity in seriousness of sentence needs adjustment .. you can get more for selling weed than you can for rape or sexual abuse ..
