David Wesley Bobbitt, the man convicted in the 2011 violent sexual assault of a 22-year-old Penticton mother, was declared a dangerous offender Friday morning and been sentenced to jail indefinitely.

The victim — who had gone missing — was found tied to a bed in a second-hand store, having been viciously beaten. 

Her two-year-old son was in the store, naked from the waist down and wearing a blood-stained T-shirt.

A manhunt was launched to find the owner of the store, the then-35-year-old Bobbitt, who eventually pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including aggravated sexual assault and unlawful confinement.

The Crown called for Bobbitt to be labelled a dangerous offender and sentenced to jail indefinitely.

The court heard evidence that Bobbitt — who, the prosecutor asserts, is strongly psychopathic and has shown no remorse — also allegedly sexually assaulted a second woman in 2007, although he has never been charged in that case.
