I have been covering crime stories for quite sometime and I do not use the word monster lightly but when one is talking about Adam Laboucan who now goes by the name Tara Desousa that is exactly what fits. Adam Laboucan was fifteen years old when he sexually assaulted a three month old child. The damage done to the infant was so severe the infant would need reconstructive surgery. Now Adam Laboucan was deemed a dangerous offender which is the most severe when it comes to the Canada Criminal System. Basically that sentence means the Canadian prison system can hold him/her indefinitely.
Since being incarcerated since 1999 Adam Laboucan has gone from a male inmate to a female inmate which was paid for by the Canadian tax payers which included a breast implant procedure to the tune of DDs. Now that Adam Laboucan has undergone these procedures she now goes by Tara Desousa and has been moved to a female prison.
Tara Desousa is a violent individual and even after being incarcerated for over twenty years she continues to have disciplinary reports regarding violence against fellow inmates and correctional officers. Due to the violence behind bars her parole has once again been denied and to be honest she should never be free again. There was also the murder admission where she admitted to killing a child when she was eleven years old (Canada law prevents individuals under 12 years old to be criminally charged)
Tara Desousa can be found on a Canadian Pen Pal site called Canadian Inmate Connect where she attempts to blame the rape of a three month old child on her upbringing.
Adam Laboucan aka Tara Desousa More News
A convicted child molester who raped a three-month-old boy has undergone gender reassignment surgery — complete with DD breast implants, the Toronto Sun has learned.
Tara Desousa was just 17 when she was known as Adam Laboucan and declared Canada’s youngest dangerous offender for the horrific sex crime.
Desousa sexually assaulted a three-month-old baby boy in Quesnel, B.C. The brutally injured child required reconstructive surgery the damage was so horrific.
After raping the baby, Desousa mutilated himself and ate his own flesh, his dangerous offender hearing heard.
Now 36, Desousa is on Canadianinmatesconnect.com and looking for love.
“I am a transgender woman and I was born a man but now after surgery I became a full woman,” Desousa writes on her profile.
“I have a vagina, not a penis and also have 720ccs DD gel implants.”
The Ontario and federal governments routinely pay for gender reassignment surgery.
Breast implants routinely cost as much as $10,000 depending on the type — and size.
Corrections Canada did not respond by press time to the Toronto Sun’s query on the ministry’s policies regarding gender reassignment.
In her profile, Desousa admits to acting selfish and impulsive when she committed her crimes and is “remorseful for what I’ve done.”
Desousa writes she’s looking for romance, intimacy and a partner “in it for the long haul.”
The convicted rapist claims to be a kind-hearted woman who loves singing, dancing and the arts. She adds she is proud to be a Native Catholic.
Desousa has a troubling history behind bars, a 2010 parole hearing heard.
During her time in the clink, she has been caught prostituting herself to fellow cons, using drugs and threatening to kill a female guard. She has been found with a knife and stabbed herself.
In 2008, the busty con married another inmate but may have since divorced him after his 2009 release.
During the 2010 hearing, the parole board refused Desousa’s release on the grounds of gender identity struggles, impulsive behaviour, violence and sexual deviance.
Desousa also admitted killing a three-year-old child when he was just 11 years old, although he was never criminally charged.
“He said he was not planning a life of crime, but he felt he had no way to control the flood of violent, murderous fantasies,” forensic psychiatrist Ian Postnikoff told Desousa’s dangerous offender hearing, adding these machinations could be turned against weaker people “with fatal consequences.”
Sexually abused when she was a child, the hearing heard that Desousa felt she had done nothing wrong.
But experts held out little hope that the one-time Adam Laboucan will be cured in the near future — if ever.
“He’s not a regular sex offender. I would be very concerned to hear that Laboucan would be released into the community in the near future,” Postnikoff said.
The Parole Board of Canada’s appeal division has upheld a decision to deny parole to a sexual offender in British Columbia who has been behind bars since becoming the country’s youngest dangerous offender in 1999.
Adam Laboucan was 17 when he was given an indeterminate prison sentence for sexually assaulting a three-month-old boy in Quesnel, B.C.
Laboucan now identifies as female and has changed her name to Tara Desousa.
Desousa’s last unsuccessful application for parole was in November 2017, and she appealed that decision on several grounds, including bias on the part of the board.
A decision from the appeal division released Tuesday rejects Desousa’s appeal, dismissing claims that incomplete or erroneous information was used in reaching a quick decision and saying there was “no reasonable apprehension of bias.”
The earlier board decision said it was concerned that Desousa was unable to manage her anger after she grabbed another inmate by the hair and threw her, then kicked her in the face.
The appeal division also noted the board had factored in Desousa’s Indigenous background.
“The board found that you have experienced negative intergenerational effects as a result, and acknowledged the linkage between your involvement in the criminal justice system and a number of elements in social and family history, including your substance abuse issues.”
The appeal division said the parole board assessed Desousa’s risk to reoffend, and found that rejecting full and day parole was reasonable.
Adam Laboucan has been declared a dangerous offender. The ruling makes the 17-year-old Canada’s youngest-ever dangerous offender.
Laboucan was just 15 when he sexually assaulted a three-month-old boy. He has also confessed to drowning a three-year-old when he was 11. Under the law, no one under 12 can be charged with an offence.
The Crown cited the brutal nature of the attack as part of its argument for declaring the B.C. teen a dangerous offender. They also pointed to psychological and psychiatric reports that show Laboucan has a poor prognosis for complete rehabilitation.
In Friday’s decision, he now gets an indeterminate sentence. He may be imprisoned for the rest of his life and won’t rejoin society unless it’s judged that he no longer poses a threat. But he will also be eligible to apply for parole in 16 months.
