Stuckless doesn't meet dangerous offender status: Psych report

TORONTO - Sex predator Gordon Stuckless does not meet the test to be declared a dangerous offender, a psychiatric assessment indicated Tuesday.

“From purely a psychiatric perspective, it is not clear that the statutory test for a dangerous offender designation is met,” Dr. Mark Pearce, a court-appointed psychiatrist, wrote in a report required before a dangerous offender hearing can be requested.
