A violent past and a series of sexual assaults has incited the B.C. Supreme Court to label 46-year-old Dennis Bragg as a 'dangerous offender'. The decision came down on Wednesday in Kamloops. The dangerous offender designation has been given not only for Bragg's criminal record, but also for his past history. Dangerous offenders in Canada are subject to a lifetime sentence, or indefinite time in detention in order to protect the public because of their violent tendencies.
