EDMONTON - Notorious Edmonton career criminal Leo Teskey was handed a five-year prison sentence Friday on his recent conviction for selling drugs while behind bars.
The sentence is to run concurrently with the indefinite term Teskey, 42, is already serving after being designated a dangerous offender, however it might affect any future bid for parole he makes.
Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Donna Read – who described Teskey as a “middle-aged man with a long and unenviable record” – said the major aggravating factor in the case was the fact Teskey committed the drug-dealing while in a correctional institution.
“Drug use in prison is a dangerous activity, trafficking in drugs even more so,” said Read, adding the danger extends to other prisoners, prison staff and visitors.
The judge also slapped Teskey with a life-time weapons prohibition after the convict unsuccessfully argued that it shouldn’t include all weapons as that might affect his potential future employment in the construction industry.
Teskey was convicted of possession of a controlled substance and two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking on March 12, following a trial.
Court heard guards did a random search of a cell Teskey shared with two other inmates at the Edmonton Remand Centre on Aug. 1, 2010, and found at the head of his bed a paper bag with two Kinder Surprise chocolate egg containers. Inside was a small amount of MS Contin and larger amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine.
Teskey had testified he was holding the drugs for another inmate, but Read rejected his claim, saying she did not believe his “contradictory and inconsistent” evidence.
Teskey was tagged a dangerous offender on July 23, 2010, after earlier being convicted of a vicious attack that left an Edmonton apartment owner in a vegetative state.
That judge ruled Teskey poses a “serious threat to society” and accepted expert evidence concluding he is “on the high end of psychopathy,” he is “virtually untreatable” and he poses a “high risk” of re-offending.
Court has heard Dougald Miller found Teskey sleeping in the hall of his 9524 115 Ave. apartment building on Nov. 21, 2000. As Miller was escorting him out, Teskey brutally attacked him, crushing his skull, breaking his nose and
jaw and leaving one ear partially detached.
Teskey – who is trying to appeal his dangerous offender status – has a lengthy rap sheet, including convictions for shooting city police Const. Mike Lakusta in 1988 and for tearing the penis of the two-year-old son of a girlfriend.
