A hearing to consider a dangerous offender designation for a man who sexually assaulted a stranger in her Halifax home in June 2018 is scheduled to begin next month.

The Crown’s application to declare Sem Paul Obed a dangerous offender will be heard March 23.

A second hearing date has also been set for April 9 to consider a pre-sentence report that will examine factors in Obed’s cultural and socio-economic background.

Obed pleaded guilty in January to charges of aggravated sexual assault, choking to overcome resistance, breaking and entering, and breaching the terms of a peace bond by consuming or possessing alcohol.
