Long Term Offender Hearing for Lethbridge Man is Moved to Calgary
LETHBRIDGE: The Long Term Offender (LTO) hearing for a Lethbridge man has been moved to a Calgary courtroom.
Patrick Bryan Ryckman admitted to child pornography charges almost a year ago in Lethbridge court, in connection with a USB stick found in a University of Lethbridge computer lab in 2009, which had numerous images of child porn on it.
The LTO designation is reserved for sexual or violent offenders considered a high risk to re-offend. To receive an LTO Ryckman would have to be sentenced to at least two years in prison, with community supervision of up to 10-years.
The hearing is scheduled to run from September 3rd to the 6th. It's being moved to Calgary to better accommodate the Edmonton judge tasked with sentencing Ryckman.
