Convicted sex offender Marcellus Jacob was denied statutory release at a National Parole Board hearing in Vancouver this week.
Jacob has “disrespect for the law, impulsivity, chronic anger, low tolerance for frustration, substance misuse, sexual preoccupation, deviant patterns of sexual arousal, attitudes condoning the sexual misuse of women and dishonesty,” according to the National Parole Board’s report.
Psychological assessments rate Jacob as a “high” risk to re-offend sexually and violently, it said.
When he was 21, Jacob broke into a Whitehorse woman’s home through a kitchen window and, over six hours, repeatedly raped and tortured her in a “extremely brutal sustained assault,” according to the report.
Jacob is currently serving a seven-year sentence for break-and-enter and sexual assault with a weapon.
In the past, Jacob has been sexually violent toward both adult and teenaged females and has a long history of violent and property-related offences.
In November 2006, Jacob missed curfew at his Vancouver-area halfway house and was missing for four days.
At that time, police deemed Jacob a high-risk to re-offend violently and a moderate- to high-risk to re-offend sexually.
He will be up for statutory release again on May 30, 2008. (LC)
