Transgender convict gets 10 years for 2 sex assaults, declared dangerous offender

Patrick ‘Tara’ Pearsall, 53, of Toronto, was sentenced on Tuesday to 10 years in prison for two sexual assaults and declared a dangerous offender.

Pearsall, of Toronto, has been taking medication to transition to a woman and began the process after the assaults occurred.

Crown and defence lawyers told the judge that Pearsall is willing to undergo chemical castration and would like to have sex reassignment surgery as soon as possible.

Corrections Canada will decide whether Pearsall serves the sentence in a prison for woman.
