A convicted sex offender has been designated a dangerous offender and will serve an additional 440 days in jail.

Ricky Lionel Keewasin, 34, was charged in October 2013 with aggravated sexual assault, sexual interference and two counts of breach of a recognizance.

He was convicted on all four counts on Aug. 30, 2016 and at that time, the Crown applied to have Keewasin classified a dangerous offender.

On Thursday in a Thunder Bay courtroom, Justice Danial Newton designated the Wunnumin Lake First Nation man a dangerous offender and sentenced him to eight years in jail minus time served pre-sentence on an enhanced credit of 1.5 days for every day he served.
