CALGARY -- If all goes well, he'll never leave the medium-security prison 100 km north of Calgary.
But even though John Horace Oughton is a dangerous offender, who's admitted he's likely to rape again if released, the system ensures he gets to try. And try.
Every two years, one 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'd probably do it again.
"I never worry about him getting out -- he doesn't show any remorse to his victims, so they won't let him go," said Carmen Aguirre.
Aguirre, one of an estimated 150 victims of the so-called "paper bag rapist," was there last week when a hearing at Bowden Institution denied parole to Oughton -- again.
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's 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.
