playwright confronts vicious child

If all goes well, he never leave the medium security prison 100 km north of Calgary.

But even though John Horace Oughton is a dangerous offender, who admitted he likely to rape again if released, the system ensures he gets to try. And try.

Every two years, one of the cruellest, most calculating rapists to ever terrorize Canadian society is allowed to sit before a parole board and ask to be released, even though the 63 year old himself has admitted to a past board that he probably do it again.

never worry about him getting out he doesn show any remorse to his victims, so they won let him go, said Carme jordans n Aguirre.

Aguirre, one of an estimated 150 victims of the so called bag rapist, was there last week when a hearing at Bowden Institution denied parole to Oughton again.

Canadian law, as farcical as it may be, says indefinitely jailed dangerous offenders like Oughton are allowed a parole hearing every two years forcing victims to relive the crime, over and over.

Aguirre will surely be there in 2015 too when Oughton goes through the motions again.

Known for using a paper bag to mask his identity or to cover his victim head, Oughton was a master of deceit and disguise who often lured targets mainly prepubescent girls by asking their help in finding a lost puppy.

He liked to take children in pairs, and wasn above callously ordering both victims to choose which of the two he assault and when he did prey upon adult women, it was usually when they had a child with them, who be forced to witness the attack.

A very sick man indeed, but so sly in keeping his face hidden that when RCMP rounded up 125 known victims, only 20 were able to identify him and it was their testimony that led to Oughton being convicted of 14 sex assaults.

That was 1987, and it took until this week for Aguirre, an award winning Vancouver playwright, to finally face her rapist, eye to eye.

the past, he sit so we only see the back of his head, she said.

was jordans the first time I ever faced him it was empowering. 13, Aguirre was assaulted by Oughton at gunpoint while her younger cousin stood by. The man told them he had but a single bullet, and if either of them turned to look at his face, he chop up the cousin while the older girl watched, before being shot.

Aguirre went public with the ordeal in 2005, when her play The Trigger candidly dealt with the rape and its aftermath, in a production one critic praised for its lack of Aguirre, who is currently acting in Calgary with Alberta Theatre Projects, says she wrote The Trigger not to console herself, but she glad some of the rapist victims have found comfort in it.

After 15 years of therapy, she actually expresses compassion for her attacker, a who is very sick. He doesn see that he hurt anyone, or see it from the jordans victims standpoint, she said.

a psychopath. a parole hearing in 2007, the National Parole Board declared O jordans ughton beyond hope for curing the urges which led to his reign of terror in the Lower Mainland in the 1970s and 1980s.

intervention exists to reduce your very high risk to reoffend to a manageable level in the community, said the parole board report.

That hearing also stated that the former hot tub salesman had been given repeated chances to complete sex offender treatment programs while in prison, but he failed every time.

At least that hearing went better than his 2003 attempt at release, when Oughton was thrown to the floor and handcuffed after an outburst when he tried to storm out of the parole hearing because it was unfair.

Unfair, of course, is having Oughton disrupting his victims lives every two years, until the day he dies or is released.

But that justice.

If all goes well, he never leave the medium security prison 100 km north of Calgary.
