A North Okanagan sexual offender is not ready to give up his legal fight.

58 year old Paul Robert Lepage (pictured) has given notice he’ll be appealing his 2008 conviction for kidnapping, drugging and sexually assaulting an 11 year old Armstrong girl in 2006.

Lepage is also appealing a decision last month by a BC Supreme Court Judge to declare him a dangerous offender which carries an indefinite prison sentence.

Crown lawyer Howard Pontious says he’s not surprised at the appeal, adding Lepage has always claimed he was innocent.

Lepage says in his application there was an “error in law” and he wants the conviction overturned.

No dates have been set for the case which will be heard in the BC Court of Appeal in Vancouver.
