A pedophile who raped a 13-year-old girl he met at an Ottawa coffee shop is in jail and may not be out anytime soon.

The 39-year-old man named Frederick Radcliffe has been declared a Dangerous Offender. He is to stay behind bars until the parole board says he is no longer a risk to the public.

Radcliffe was found guilty last year of sexual assault and sexual interference after he offered a 13-year-old girl a ride home from a Tim Hortons on Donald Street in 2007. Instead of taking her home, he parked behind a car wash and raped her.

Radcliffe has an extensive criminal record and has been convicted for multiple indecent acts.
