Leo Teskey | Dangerous Offender
« on: September 04, 2010, 01:31:42 PM »
Phew. I was beginning to get worried there. I almost felt sorry for the offender that must be in the cell, day in an day out, and not be able to have the luxuries from the outside world (good or bad)--until, of course, I read that they are able to obtain and stash "a sizeable quantity of drugs" in their cell, including cocaine, methamphetamine, magic, mushrooms, marijuana, ecstasy and MS Contin.....

A little over a month after career criminal Leo Teskey was declared a dangerous offender, the Solicitor General's office confirms a sizeable quantity of drugs was found in his cell at the Edmonton Remand Centre. Among the items seized : cocaine, methamphetamine, magic mushrooms, marijuana, ecstasy and MS Contin.

Wonder how many heads roll on this one, and what the repercussions are, and what the cameras reveal, and how the country club will change from here...

Interestingly, the report out today is slightly different than yesterday's story which stated there was a "sizeable" amount of drugs with the description of items seized.  But, today the story reports 1) no one within Edmonton police was able to comment on the drugs found, 2) authorities claiming "It wasn't a large amount." and 3) authorities are claiming "it is believed" the drugs were provided by a visitor smuggling them into the facility.

I sure hope the authorities will follow up on that "visitor."  It would seem that it would not be hard to trace who has contact with the dangerous offender.  I can't imagine wanting those types of visitors to continue to drop by.

The Alberta Solicitor General's Office spokesperson did conclude that inmates are housed in a manner which depends on the sort of danger they pose.  (What type of danger does a dangerous offender pose? This happened in July and he is still being housed in an Edmonton facility waiting to be transported.)

Teskey background:
- Teskey is held in Edmonton Remand Centre awaiting transfer to a federal facility.
- This is the second time (how does that happen?) Teskey was ruled a dangerous offender. (Would be interesting to see why the Supreme Court ordered a new trial.)
- Provincial court Judge Eric Peterson had once stated Teskey has a substance abuse problem. (How does that continue in confinement?)
- After being found sleeping in a hallway on November 21, 2000, Teskey launched a brutal attack crushing the caretaker's skull, breaking his jaw and rendering him unable to talk or move in a care facility.
- He tore the privates off his girlfriend's two-year-old son.

- He shot Edmonton Police Const. Mike Lakusta in 1988.

I don't know who his family are but this one better not ever be on the streets again with such violence he exhibits and his chronic need for drugs. The drugs must influence his violence to an extent and he can't seem to be without them.
I have seen the product of his rage and it's not pretty; it's heartbreaking!. The wife of the man who is in a vegetative state mourns daily.

Jailed indefinitely. at least one judge has the safety of the public in mind.

EDMONTON - A man who brutally beat an Edmonton apartment manager almost 14 years ago will remain in prison indefinitely.

Alberta's Court of Appeal has dismissed Leo Teskey's bid to remove his dangerous offender status.

Teskey was first convicted in 2002 of aggravated assault and sentenced as a dangerous offender, but the Supreme Court ordered a new trial.

He was again convicted and deemed a danger to the public in 2010.

Dougald Miller was walking through one of his apartment buildings when he came across Teskey sleeping in a hallway and tried to get him to leave.

Teskey then launched a vicious attack, almost ripped Miller's ear off and crushed his skull, leaving him permanently brain damaged and in need of constant care.

Teskey made several arguments before the Appeal Court, including that he was not tried and sentenced within a reasonable period of time and that delays gave the Crown's psychological witnesses more time to examine him. Several experts testified in court that Teskey is an untreatable, manipulative psychopath.

He also has a lengthy criminal record that also includes shooting and wounding an Edmonton police officer and tearing the penis of a two-year-old boy.

The Appeal Court rejected all of Teskey's claims.



"Since the appellant has been sentenced to an indefinite term of imprisonment, any prejudice he may have suffered from not being given that sentence even earlier is not obvious."
