One of Canada’s most violent criminals will have a chance at day parole next year.
A hearing for Paul Bernardo is set for March.
Although Bernardo has been designated a dangerous offender with an indefinite sentence, the 52 year old became eligible for day parole after serving 22 years behind bars.
If parole is granted, he would have to check into either jail or a half-way house in the evening and would only be free during the day.
The lawyer for the families of victims Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy says he is confident that Bernardo will never get parole of any kind.
Tim Danson tells the Toronto Star that he will be at the hearing to challenge the effort.
