The mother of a 16-year-old boy held captive for 10 days and repeatedly raped told court Friday she wants the man responsible declared a dangerous offender.
David James Leblanc, 48, was sentenced to 11 years in prison Friday after he previously pleaded guilty to charges including kidnapping, forcible confinement and sexual assault. He also pleaded guilty to charges in an earlier case involving the sexual assault of two young boys.
The teen's mother said her son was prescribed anti-HIV drugs and anxiety medication after he was chained and raped by two men in a cabin in Upper Chelsea, a rural area about 125 km west of Halifax.
"If there's anything good that can come from this sickening crime against my son it would be to have David James Leblanc declared a dangerous offender," the mother said in her victim impact statement.
"He has been filled with such an overwhelming amount of despair and hopelessness and to have your 16-year-old child tell you through tears and sobs that he doesn't want to live anymore."
While she spoke, Leblanc rolled his eyes, sighed and shook his head.
In September, Leblanc promised the teen a painting job. The boy said Leblanc conned him into getting into a van in Halifax, and drove him to a cabin in Upper Chelsea, where he met Leblanc's partner, Wayne Alan Cunningham.
Leblanc gave him alcohol and offered him money to see his penis, and the boy said he was marched into a bedroom, chained to the floor and sexually assaulted.
Over the next 10 days, the teen said he was sometimes chained standing with his arms above his head and other times locked to the bed while Cunningham and Leblanc took turns raping him.
Eventually, the teen told court, he managed to unscrew the eye ring holding one of his wrists when the cabin was empty. Wearing only a hoodie, he ran barefoot to find help.
After a national manhunt, Cunningham's body was found outside of Thunder Bay, Ont.
Leblanc was arrested nearby.
The mother said her son has scars on his wrists and ankles from being chained up -- a "reminder of his ordeal."
The Crown has not yet decided whether or not to pursue a dangerous-offender designation against Leblanc. The status carries an automatic indefinite prison sentence, with no parole for seven years.
hope he gets what he deserves
Do they need more evidence for him to be deemed a dangerous offender? Really??
This should be the death penalty. 11 years is a joke.
“While she spoke, Leblanc rolled his eyes, sighed and shook his head.”
At which point a Louisville Slugger should have been swinging for the fence...
He'll be out in four.
Folks, if that were my teenage boy, this filth would already be dead, which is exactly what he deserves. Where is this boy's father? (either divorced and long gone...or unknown is my bet, perhaps dead) Where are his uncles?
This is intolerable, and I pray this perverted animial gets what he deserves and is thus rendered no longer a threat to others. As it is, he will get out and we will hear about him again.
Definitely. Unfortunately, there’s no DP in Canada. But that’s not to say that some other prisoner in that jail can’t fix this travesty of justice. I can only hope it happens.
This perv is a serial pederast/rapist who chained a boy in a bedroom to be abused for 10 days with another perv and there’s a question whether he’s a dangerous offender?
Now known to have abused/raped three boys and he gets 11 years with chance of early parole.
Short rope and a tall oak tree.
He deserves a slow and painful death.

Dead men tell no tales?
Shouldn’t he be up on murder charges ?
It’s a crime that he only got 11 years! This kid will be scarred horribly for life, and this sadistic sob gets to walk after a decade? Liberal injustice.
1-2 headshots should do it nicely. Now if you want to just cause pain, start at the feet and work your way up...
Ankle joints, with small caliber, then the knee joints.
Blowtorch & pliers; call Jack Bauer!
Folks, if that were my teenage boy, this filth would already be dead, which is exactly what he deserves.
This monster and his butt buddy kidnapped, tortured, raped a boy over a period of ten days and most likely planned to murder him after they were through. He got a measly eleven years. I think the reason for this is that the men that rule Nova Scotia would like to do the same thing.
Yes, but it will be a measly 11 years of being constantly gang-raped by fellow prisoners, who despise child rapists more than anything.
