A man who sexually assaulted a nine year old girl in Surrey nearly three years ago has been designated a dangerous offender.
Kyle Berkson broke into the girl's home in April of 2010, raped her and cut her with scissors before threatening to kill her if she told anyone.
He was convicted in February of 2011, but since then, at least psychiatric evaluations have been done to determine if he's too dangerous to set free.
A judge has now ruled he is a dangerous offender and handed him an indeterminate sentence...meaning there is no fixed time for his release.
The chronic offender, who turns 39 this year, showed no emotion when the judge delivered his findings.
The victim's family members say they had no doubt about the outcome and the girl who's now 12, is doing well.
