Child rapist transferred to prison with unit for mothers and children

A Canadian man convicted of raping a three-month-old baby has been moved to a prison with a unit for mothers to care for their babies after he claimed to be transgender.

Adam LaBucan did not identify as a “woman” until he went to prison.

Laboucan raped a baby boy in 1997 when she was a 15-year-old babysitter. The child was so badly injured that he had to be airlifted 410 miles away to a hospital in Vancouver to undergo the reconstructive surgery he needed.

The Toronto Sun reports that “after raping the child, DeSousa mutilated herself and ate her own flesh.”

Once incarcerated, British Columbia reportedly billed LaBucan for large DD fake breasts and a gender reassignment surgery.

“While at his clinic, he has been caught prostituting himself to colleagues, using drugs and threatening to kill a female guard. He was found with a knife and stabbed himself,” says the Sun report.

According to the Sun, the child abuser also admitted to killing a three-year-old when she was just 11 years old — but was never charged because of Canadian law that says children under 12 cannot be charged with the crime.

Redox reports that “the child’s mother, Delores Deutsch, told the court she wants LaBucan to spend the rest of his life in prison. ‘They thought it was an accident, but inside I knew it wasn’t. I don’t know I guess a mother knows this feeling inside,’ she said.

“While in custody, he would turn them against himself, but this high level of self-mutilation, almost self-hatred, could be turned against other, vulnerable people, possibly with fatal consequences,” expert witness Dr. Ian Postnikoff told the BC Supreme Court.

“He said biting himself tended to relieve anger and frustration,” Postnikoff told the court. “In one instance, he chewed on his arm for 30 minutes, consuming fat and muscle tissue.”

“With the history and severity of Mr. LaBucan’s crimes, it is difficult to say how long his treatment will last,” Postnikoff continued. He is not a regular sex offender. I would say it would be a very long time, probably years. I will be very anxious to hear that Labocan will be released into the community in the near future.”

Despite the fact that this prisoner poses an extreme danger to others, he is now being housed with vulnerable women and their children.

“The Fraser Valley Institution for Women features a minimum-security annex that hosts a program for incarcerated mothers and their children,” Redox reported. “The mother-child program takes place in a house with facilities such as a shared kitchen, lounge and bathroom as well as multiple bedrooms. It is located within a compound of similar housing units, much like a neighborhood.’

“Other prisoners who are not mothers themselves may be allowed to stay with the mother and child and may even apply to act as babysitters or ‘aunties,'” the report explains, “although they may be subject to a risk assessment.”

According to prison rules, children can stay with their mothers until their fifth birthday and part-time until their seventh birthday.
