PENTICTON — A dangerous offender hearing for violent sex offender David Wesley Bobbitt has been scheduled for this summer.

The hearing will begin the week of June 9 and is expected to last until the first week of July.

Bobbitt was sentenced last year after he pleaded guilty to the violent sexual assault of a young Penticton woman, who he held in his second-hand store for hours against her will. The woman’s toddler was with her at the time, however he was unharmed.

The decision was made at a pretrial conference Thursday in Penticton Supreme Court.
