A Canadian man convicted of raping a three-month-old baby has been transferred to a prison with a unit that caters for mothers and their babies after claiming he is now transgender.
Adam Laboucan now identifies as a “woman,” but it was not until he went to prison.
In 1997, Laboucan raped a baby boy when he was a 15-year-old babysitter. The infant suffered such horrific injuries he had to be airlifted to a hospital in Vancouver to perform reconstructive surgery.
Desousa also began “mutilating himself and eating his own flesh,” according to a report from the Toronto Sun.
British Columbia taxpayers paid for Laboucan to get large DD fake breasts and surgery to chnage his sex while in prison.
“During her time in the clink, she has been caught prostituting herself to fellow cons, using drugs, and threatening to kill a female guard. She has been found with a knife and stabbed herself,” the Sun report says.
The child molester also admitted to killing a three-year-old child when he was just 11 years old but was never charged due to Canadian laws that dictate people under 12 cannot be charged with a crime.
According to reports from Reduxx, “the child’s mother, Delores Deutsch, told the court that she wanted Laboucan to remain in prison for the rest of his life. ‘They thought it was an accident, but inside I knew it wasn’t. I don’t know. I guess a mother just knows, inside that feeling,’ she said.”
“While in custody, he would turn them against himself, but this high level of self-mutilation, almost self-cannibalization, could be turned against other, weaker individuals, with possibly fatal consequences,” expert witness Dr. Ian Postnikoff told the B.C. Supreme Court.
“He said that biting himself tended to ease the anger and frustration,” Postnikoff told the court. “In one instance, he chewed on his arm for 30 minutes, ingesting fat and muscle tissue.”
“With the history and severity of the offenses of Mr. Laboucan, it’s difficult to say how long his treatment would last,” Postnikoff continued.
“He’s not a regular sexual offender. I would say it would be a very long time, possibly years. I would be very, very concerned to hear that Laboucan would be released into the community in the near future.”
With all the extreme and disturbing history of this inmate in mind, its incomprehensible he is going to be sharing the same walls with vulnerable women and their babies.
“Fraser Valley Institution for Women features a minimum-security annex that hosts a program for incarcerated mothers and their babies,” Reduxx reported.
“The Mother-Child Program takes place in a house comprised of facilities such as a shared kitchen, lounge and bathroom, as well as multiple bedrooms. It is situated within a compound of similar housing units, much like a neighborhood.’
“Other inmates who are not mothers themselves may be permitted to stay with the mother and child can even apply to serve as babysitters or ‘aunties,'” the report explains, “though they may be subject to a risk assessment.”
Heather Mason, an advocate for incarcerated women, said that one of the women who was in the mother-child program had testified about how “Tara Desousa (aka Adam Laboucan) would loiter near her and her child, making sexist and inappropriate antagonizing comments,” according to meaww.
Another inmate claimed she was allegedly warned by a prison guard about Laboucan.
“I was told that there was an extremely violent child sex offender present who hadn’t been in the presence of a young child in a very long time,” the mother said, noting her son was close to the same age as Laboucan’s rape victim.
“Once I was informed of the sick and brutal nature of the crime against the child, I regretted even going or letting that person set eyes on my child,” she said.
