Post by: Sap1 on August 14, 2016, 07:27:28 PM
Apparently this man was given a leave to attend a Pow Wow! Not a Doctor's appt, not a trial hearing, but a Powwow!! Unbelievable!! And his crimes are various, including violent sex offenses!!

A dangerous offender originally from Saskatchewan has escaped federal custody in Alberta.

Darrell Moosomin, 54, was granted leave on Saturday to attend a powwow in Maskwacis, 100 kilometres south of Edmonton. He was escorted by an elder, who lost sight of him in the evening.

RCMP have obtained a countrywide warrant for Moosomin’s arrest.

Moosomin, who is originally from Mosquito Lake in northern Saskatchewan, was being held at the Pe Sakastew Centre, a minimum security federal institution in Alberta.

The prisoner was serving an indeterminate sentence for several violent offences. He has convictions dating back to 1995 and was declared a dangerous offender in 2008. He has also served a sentence for escaping custody.


RCMP say Moosomin has no known family or friends in the area where he escaped. It’s unknown where he might be headed.

He is First Nations, 5-foot-9-inches tall and weighs 217 pounds. He has a medium complexion, with brown eyes and black hair. He has a scar on his neck, and tattoos on his right hand and upper back. He speaks with a lisp.

Anyone with information on Moosomin’s whereabouts is asked to contact police. RCMP have asked that the public not approach him.

This person has spotted in Edmonton Ab.
Now the parole board will have another review! How many dang reviews do they need to do after being so dang careless in the first place??!! They apparently do not look through records when deciding on day parole, etc. IMO, being allowed to leave with an "elder" is absolutely careless endangerment of the general public. That was a ploy and the elder should be held responsible if there are any infractions of the law against people or property. The elder was helping this burden to escape!

 Maskwacis RCMP are searching for 54-year-old Darell Moosomin who failed to return to the Pe Sakastew Centre Saturday, August 13, 2016. Outrage after dangerous offender walks away while on escorted day pass in central Alberta
But just how horrific his crimes were is now clear after the release of documents by the Parole Board of Canada late Thursday.

READ MORE: Outrage after dangerous offender walks away while on escorted day pass in central Alberta

One of the worst crimes happened in 1994. Moosomin confined and tortured a victim for eight hours, according to the documents. The victim was able to escape after he fell asleep.

The victim suffered injuries and trauma to most of her body. The parole board told Moosomin: “you injured your victim in the groin area and sewed her up without anesthetic.”

Watch below: Darrell Moosomin was out on an escorted temporary absence from a federal prison in central Alberta when he disappeared. Nancy Hixt reports Aug. 15, 2016.


Moosomin has approximately 74 convictions dating back to 1979, including sexual assault, assault with a weapon, obstructing a police officer and forcible confinement.

The documents say he held a knife against the neck of a male victim threatening to kill him, sexually assaulted a girlfriend and her two young children and assaulted an ex-girlfriend’s brother–injuring his legs so badly that one needed to be amputated.

Multiple victim impact statements submitted to the board speak of fear of the now 54-year-old. That fear was magnified when the offender continuously contacted his victims from jail.

The Parole Board of Canada asked Moosomin why he committed such “horrendous” offences. He said he “wanted the victim to feel the pain and hurt [he was] feeling.” He said he considered his victims to be his property.

The documents obtained by Global News also outline crimes involving a baby. Moosomin admitted to the board he’s committed “probably a lot” of other violent crimes that he’s never been caught for.

The board noted he’s expressed remorse for what he’s done and said jail has given him the opportunity to turn his life around.

Moosomin was raised by foster parents after his mother was killed in a car accident. His father was unable to care for him due to substance abuse issues. He has six children from various relationships.

He has taken multiple programs to address his risk, including several sex offender treatment programs. The most recent one was completed in 2014.

Much of his time in custody has been spent at “healing lodges” but the board noted it has been wrought with issues. He often acted inappropriately towards female staff, which resulted in him being sent to higher-security facilities.

A warrant remains out for his arrest after he walked away while on an escorted temporary absence Aug. 13 from Pe Sakastew healing lodge, where he’d been since March 2015. He was escorted by an elder to a powwow at the Samson Cree Nation at Maskwacis in central Alberta when he disappeared.

Victim advocates question why Moosomin was granted any freedoms at all.

“Why do we have a dangerous offender application process if it’s not going to mean anything? We need way more accountability,” said Danielle Aubry of Calgary Communities Against Sexual Abuse.

“Dangerous offender should mean something. There’s a fairly big flaw in the system and the attention needs to be [brought] to it because other people are going to get hurt,” she said.

Prior to his latest escape, he had participated in dozens of escorted temporary absences.

But the freedoms Moosomin received stopped there. He has been turned down over and over for full parole and day parole, most recently in 2014.

A sex offender assessment of Moosomin was completed in February 2016, deeming him a “medium risk.” Prior assessments deemed him as a moderate- to high-risk to reoffend and his request to have “unescorted” temporary absences was declined.

The board noted Moosomin would “present an undue risk to society” if left unescorted.

Moosemin also has a prior conviction for escaping lawful custody.

The Justice Department of Canada declined to comment on the case, deflecting to the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC).

Officials said “it would be inappropriate for CSC to comment on a review of the justice system. What we can tell you is that CSC reviews the circumstances surrounding all escapes.”

Late Friday afternoon, Maskwacis RCMP issued a release saying there was an alleged sighting of Moosomin at 4 a.m. Patrols of the area did not locate him. Police warned people not to approach Moosomin.

This is unbelievable. This dangerous offender was at a healing lodge, not a prison even! So far there have been 18 DO's escaped from the healing lodges. He is not going to change so why even try?
He didn't walk or hitch hike from southern Alberta or people would have remembered him. This had to have been a plan and someone has helped him get to Edmonton. Someone will be complicit if he picks another victim.

Following you will see that even child rapists and murderers are molly coddled by this system.


http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/canadian-politics/dangerous-offenders-escape-raises-questions-about-security-effectiveness-of-healing-lodges

CALGARY — On Saturday night, Darrell Moosomin walked away from prison.

Classified as a dangerous offender, the 54-year-old had been serving an indeterminate sentence in a minimum-security First Nations Healing Lodge in central Alberta. Over the weekend, he was granted permission to attend a powwow ceremony under the supervision of an elder.

He was reported missing at 8:45 p.m that night. Originally from Mosquito Lake, Sask., Moosomin had been convicted for a range of violent crimes dating back to 1995, including sexual assault, aggravated assault and forcible confinement.

The Pe Sakastew Centre, the minimum-security facility where he had been serving his time, is one of nine such healing lodges located across the country, part of an attempt to reduce the disproportionate and growing number of First Nations people serving prison time. Since it opened in 1997 it has sought to provide culturally relevant and spiritual programming to its largely Aboriginal population, as well as the conventional mix of counselling and vocational training.

The lodges incorporate First Nations symbols and culturally-inspired building structures, and offer some inmates their first real encounter with First Nations culture and beliefs. They seek to foster a more respectful atmosphere between staff and inmates, and have been hailed by reformers as a useful tool in reintegrating a vulnerable population after prison. And they generally offer inmates more independence, less formal structure and fewer security measures.


But healing lodges in general and Pe Sakastew in particular have been plagued by frequent and recurrent escapes, sometimes by dangerous offenders deemed a high risk to re-offend; while many escapees are recaptured peacefully, and some even return on their own, over the past two decades escapees from Pe Sakastew have been involved in police standoffs, shootouts, a hostage taking and even a suicide.

There are hesitations in communities, particularly if you’re dealing with people who have a history of violence coming back into their communities. That’s understandable
According to the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC), 18 inmates have escaped First Nations healing lodges over the past five years. Pe Sakastew, a 60-bed facility comprised of teepee-like chalets surrounded by a chain-link fence, has recorded 34 escapees since 1999.


In 1999 Robert Cardinal, who had been serving time for raping and killing a 12-year-old girl, became the ninth prisoner in a year-and-a-half to flee the facility. He was arrested after a two-day manhunt.

In 2001, two inmates were caught after they held a woman hostage at knifepoint and forced her to drive west. (One of the men in that case, Clifford Matthew Sleigh, was later convicted with murder, kidnapping and aggravated assault in connection with the death of a six-year-old who had been killed in 1992. He wracked up several convictions for sexually assaulting young girls before he was sentenced to life in prison.)

In 2003, Pe Sakastew escapee Daniel Couterielle killed himself after a 30-hour standoff with police. That same year, in an incident with some similarities to Moosomin’s escape, a sex offender fled his escort while visiting a nearby round dance.

“An important part of preparing Indigenous offenders for reintegration from custody to the community is the transfer to Healing Lodges where Indigenous offenders have access to services and programs in an environment that incorporates Aboriginal peoples’ traditions, beliefs, and practices,” wrote CSC spokeswoman Megan Hooper in a statement.

Correctional Service of Canada
Correctional Service of CanadaThe Pe Sakastew Centre in Alberta has recorded 34 escapees since 1999.
Hooper added that public safety is paramount. Inmates deemed dangerous offenders are only “placed in a minimum-security institution if they have made significant progress in addressing the factors that led to their criminal behaviours, and are considered to be a manageable risk.”

Asked about recidivism rates among former inmates released from healing lodges, Hooper responded “This information is not readily available.”

In 2013, a CSC backgrounder claimed that recidivism rates from those who had completed programs at three of the facilities were 6 per cent — roughly half that of the national federal recidivism rate of 11 per cent.

However, other research contradicts those optimistic figures. A 2001 study found the recidivism rate for offenders who attended healing lodges was 19 per cent — higher than the 13 per cent registered for Aboriginal offenders who were released from conventional minimum security facilities.

Advocates pin these results directly on the government’s wavering commitment to the healing lodge model and a lack of financial support.

“Are they adequately funded? Is there adequate programming? Is there sufficient funding to ensure proper screening?” Edmonton Aboriginal rights lawyer Lionel Chartrand, who has Metis heritage, told the Post. “You have to make sure the inmates are being matched properly. This requires psychological testing and screening results. Is this being done, or are they so rushed on their intakes that they don’t screen carefully?

Darrell Moosomin was arrested Sunday evening after Killam RCMP received reports that a man matching Moosomin’s description was seen hitchhiking on Highway 13 just east of Daysland.

The dangerous offender has been missing since Aug. 13 when he was granted day leave from the Pe Sakastew Centre in Maskwacis to attend the Samson powwow. He was escorted by an elder, but sometime last Saturday evening the elder lost sight of him.

He should be kept in a secure facility - period. A danger offender designation - should not be treated lightly.  Surely the parole board would understand that much ??

He has had the benefit of various types of treatment, with little results.
Why take up space in various treatment sessions, when other prisoners might benefit.

Enough is enough.
Lets give the public, and the cops a break!!
He should be held in a secure prison.

Cape, although one reads a lot about aboriginals more likely to be incarcerated for longer periods than offenders who are non-aboriginal, that is misleading.
There are many such healing lodges whereby dangerous offenders get off easy (not incarcerated in prisons as they should be) and can spend their sentence in minimum healing lodges.
We know so very little about this, however now it has come to a head since the escape of this dangerous offender. And hopefully the parole boards will rethink this policy of their.

Darrell Moosomin sits in a jail cell at the Edmonton Remand Centre Tuesday after a more than a week on the run.

It’s a stark contrast to the atmosphere he’s grown accustomed to at a minimum-security healing lodge in central Alberta.

Moosomin has been serving an indeterminate sentence as a dangerous offender. He’s spent the past year-and-a-half at Pe Sakastew. He escaped while out on an escorted temporary absence with an elder Aug. 13. He was at a powwow at the Samson Cree Nation in Maskwacis at the time.

WATCH: There are growing demands for accountability from Corrections Services Canada after Global News revealed a dangerous offender walked away from an escorted temporary absence. Darrell Moosomin was serving his indeterminate sentence at a minimum security healing lodge. Global’s Nancy Hixt reports.

The Correctional Service of Canada granted the 54-year-old dozens of escorted temporary absences, even though the parole board rejected all bids for freedom.

Despite numerous issues while in custody, he was able to end up at a healing lodge—which ended up giving him the opportunity he needed to escape.

According to CSC, the goal of these healing lodges is not to make good inmates, but to properly prepare offenders for reintegration into society.

“I don’t want to go to a maximum security,” he told the judge Tuesday.

He attempted to plead guilty to a lesser charge, asking:

“What do you think, Your Honour? You’re the judge. I never scaled a fence. I never dug a hole. Would the Crown be willing to reconsider bringing it back to unlawfully at large?”
The charge of escaping lawful custody remains and the questions about how this could happen remain unanswered.

Canada’s prison watchdog maintains healing lodges work.

“I think it would be a mistake to abandon an entire program stream or limit opportunities for other individuals because something didn’t work in this particular case,” Correctional Investigator of Canada Howard Sapers told Global News.

Moosomin has approximately 74 convictions dating back to 1979, including sexual assault, assault with a weapon, obstructing a police officer and forcible confinement.

In 1994, Moosomin tortured a woman for eight hours. The victim was able to escape after he fell asleep, but suffered injuries and trauma to most of her body.

Moosomin’s escape is especially concerning for the people who live nearby the healing lodge, who wonder if he will one day end up back at the facility.

“Corrections Canada needs to look at how they do business. How are they allowing these people out into our community?” Samson Cree Nation Councillor Vernon Saddleback said.

Is his record keeping and filing in such a disarray that he cannot find the rap sheets of these offenders? I was always under the impression that all previous offences were looked at prior to placing these criminals, however situations that have arisen seem to prove that is not the case. One example: the person who shot Constable Wynn St. Albert. Even the judge wondered why this man was not in prison.
Just too many cases and too much laxness from the parole board.

When a person has committed violent crimes, a healing lodge is not the answer. Someone who has 79 charges against them, by now they should know that "healing lodge crap" is not working. It is not even sensible to think that a judge handed down this sentence and carried it out. And DM was supposed to be on an escorted time away, he wasn't escorted, he indicated he just walked away. Well he should know himself that he is breaking the law, walking away is escaping, it doesn't matter if he ran or whatever, he escaped. He was not to leave that property, so that is his mentality. I think a great place for him would be a locked down facility and for a couple of years. They can give him some guidance and counselling there, if it will ever help him. There should be no special handouts for anyone in violent crime, I don't care what your status is in society. Live by the rules or pay the price. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
