Man guilty of vicious attack on Ajax girl
Sep 15, 2009 - 11:30 AM

By Jeff Mitchell

OSHAWA -- A judge is hearing an application by the Crown to have an Ajax man, convicted of a brutal sexual assault, declared a dangerous offender.

Christopher Ivan Ramgadoo, 32, has pleaded guilty to several offences, including aggravated sexual assault, forcible confinement and choking in relation to the April, 2007 attack on a 13-year-old girl. The girl was choked and bitten on the face during the assault which took place in a stairwell of an apartment building in the area of Church Street and Kingston Road.

Mr. Ramgadoo was arrested by Durham police at his Meekings Drive home a few days after the assault.

The Crown has launched a dangerous offender application before Ontario Court Justice Donald Halikowski, citing Mr. Ramgadoo's criminal record and the likelihood he will re-offend. If the judge grants the application, it would mean Mr. Ramgadoo could be held in prison indefinitely.

The hearing is scheduled to continue throughout the week in Oshawa.

I do hope the "busy public" see the seriousness of this child's awful ordeal; I hope it's a crowded courtroom - or at least concerned public outside the court -thus... showing the need to prosecute this monster to the fullest possible extent of the law!

Whitby's Stratton one step close to being declared a dangerous sex offender

Crown clears first hurdle in court
Oct 01, 2009 - 04:30 AM

By Jeff Mitchell

OSHAWA -- The Crown has cleared its first hurdle in a campaign to have a convicted sex offender jailed indefinitely, convincing a judge to order an expert opinion on the man's potential to reoffend.

On Tuesday in Oshawa Ontario Court, Justice Paul Bellfontaine ordered Michael Ross Stratton transferred to Ottawa, where he'll undergo a psychological assessment aimed at determining whether he ought to be jailed indefinitely for sex crimes against nine female victims aged six to 17.

"I am of the opinion Mr. Stratton might be found to be a dangerous or long-term offender," Justice Bellefontaine said in making the order.

The Crown has announced its intention to seek a dangerous offender designation for Mr. Stratton, who was arrested in 2006 and earlier this year pleaded guilty to 13 charges including sexual assault. If successful, the application would see the Whitby man jailed indefinitely, with a review of his status every seven years.

Prosecutor Kent Saliwonchyk has argued Mr. Stratton's numerous and egregious offences warrant the tough sentence; defence lawyer Alan Risen submits Mr. Stratton's crimes, while serious, should result in a sentence of three to five years, time Mr. Stratton has already accumulated in pretrial custody.

Mr. Stratton is due back in court in December. If the assessment is favourable to the Crown's application, Mr. Saliwonchyk will seek leave from the Attorney General to proceed with the dangerous offender hearing.
