THE RECENT CRIMINAL HISTORY OF REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER MICHAEL DANIAL BEWCYK
THIS IS THE STORY THAT THE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS AT TBPS, TBLAZYNEWSWATCH & CBC THUNDER BAY WON’T TELL YOU.
MICHAEL DANIAL BEWYCK spent a lot of time near children. Mostly as a janitor at a school. Sources indicate he’s not working and living on 300 block of North Franklin near the intersection of Cumming Street and very close to the Neebing River. He used to play a lot of strange games with kids in the basement crawl space of the school. The now grown up adults recall those incidents and how strange they were. It’s not know if he’s been married or has children. He was fired by the school after his child pornography charges.
Between July 11, 2006 and January 21,2010 MICHAEL DANIEL BEWYCK defrauded his own father in excess of 5000$. The exact amount is not known, nor are the details surrounding the lengthy fraud. On October 28,2010, he pleads guilty and is sentenced along with the accessing child pornography charges. He receives a 9 month Conditional Sentence Order (house arrest) on the fraud. A charge of fraudulently impersonating his father is withdrawn by the Crown.
On March 10,2010 Numerous charges were laid across Ontario following a massive, coordinated, child pornography investigation by the Provincial Strategy to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Exploitation on the Internet.
At a media conference in Toronto, OPP Commissioner Julian FANTINO along with members of the Provincial Strategy's police partners, who were instrumental in bringing this investigation to a successful conclusion, announced details of this investigation. (When was the last time you seen the Director of Communications at TBPS or the Chief of Police do a media conference?)
A total of 44 search warrants were executed, resulting in 122 charges against 35 persons. Charges include Sexual Assault, Possession of Child Pornography, Make Available Child Pornography, Distribution of Child Pornography, Making Child Pornography, Accessing Child Pornography, and various drug offences. In addition, two child victims have been identified during the investigation - one in Ontario and one outside of Canada and numerous charges regarding possession of prohibited weapons have been laid.
Among those charged was MICHAEL DANIAL BEWYCK of Thunder Bay who was 61 years old at the time. He was arrested on March 10, 2010 charged with accessing child pornography on November 29,2009 and released on a promise to appear.
On October 10, 2010, he plead guilty and was sentenced by Justice Frank Valente to 21 days in jail, and 12 months probation. He was placed on the SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY for 10 years and also ordered to submit his DNA. His computer for accessing child pornography was forfeited to the Crown. Oddly, the victim fine surcharge was waived.
BREACHING HIS PROHIBITION ORDER
On August 8,2015, a 67 year old MICHAEL DANIAL BEWYCK attended the CLE knowing that he was was under an ORDER OF PROHIBITION by the Sex Offender Registry ( tbnewswatch and CBC keep calling in probation lol) from being at public parks, where persons under the age of 16 are present. He was arrested by Thunder Bay Police and released with an appearance notice for court.
On November 16,2015, MICHAEL DANIAL BEWYCK pleads guilty in the courtroom of Justice Dino DiGiuseppe. He’s fined 250$ along with a victim surcharge of 75$ and given 6 months to pay.
