David Jennings, B.C. Pedophile, Designated A Dangerous Offender

B.C. Corrections
KAMLOOPS, B.C. - A convicted pedophile whose apartment was full of stuffed toys has been designated a dangerous offender in a Kamloops, B.C. court.

Fifty-one-year-old David Jennings has been handed an indeterminate sentence after being convicted of sexually molesting an eight-year-old boy he was babysitting in 2011.

Crown lawyer Joel Gold says Jennings has four prior sexual assault convictions involving children and has breached a number of court orders.

The court has heard that in the case three years ago, the boy called him Uncle Dave and that the sexual offence occurred despite the fact that RCMP issued a public warning about Jennings and the threat he posed to children.

Jennings has also consistently displayed little or no interest in counselling and doesn't acknowledge his offences.

A probation officer and a Mountie told the pedophile's dangerous-offender hearing in April that they saw stuffed toys and cartoon videos in his home. (CHNL, The Canadian Press)
