Abbotsford police have issued a warning that Donald Bakker, a convicted sex tourist, with a high risk to re-offend has moved into Abbotsford. Donald originally moved to Penticton after he was released on May 31, 2012 after serving almost seven years for sexually assaulting sex-trade workers in Vancouver and video taping the assaults. He was also convicted of sexually abusing seven Cambodian girls between the ages of seven to 14. Donald was given a sentence of 10 years but only served 7 years because of “time served” while waiting for his trial. The people of Penticton were disgusted when Donald was moved into their community and eventually he had not place to live and turned himself into the RCMP.
I don’t think there is any community that would welcome a High Risk Sex Offender like Donald Bakker.
