Accused sex offender expected to change guilty plea

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

A Vancouver man accused of committing sex crimes against children is expected to change his guilty plea in September.

Ibata Hexamer was slated to have a dangerous offender hearing this month, but that’s been delayed as he tries to withdraw his admission of guilt.

The man, who once worked for the COPE civic party, initially faced more than 20 charges dating back to 1995 and involving girls as young as six.

He was arrested in December of 2010, and in August of 2012, he pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual assault and two of unlawful confinement.

His case has been dragging on because he’s already fired five lawyers.

Hexamer is currently in custody.

If he’s declared a dangerous offender, it could be several years before he’s allowed to apply for parole.

His next court date is September 2nd.

  1. After manipulating the case for so long he could plead the charges be dropped due to the delay of justice and his right to a speedy trial. Given the mindset of our judges, they would probably agree that his rights have been abused and he should be set free. Sound ridiculous? Remember, this is Canada, it could happen.
