The Parole Board of Canada says Dale Sweeney, who is 47, is a “risk to society.”

Sweeney is serving 10 years for ordering a crime be committed for a criminal organization and possession of property obtained by crime.

Parole documents say he was first arrested in 2012 in possession of $20,000 and score sheets related to a drug trafficking.

He was released without any charges, but was arrested again last year.

The documents say Sweeney had a previous record of crimes of violence, theft, fraud, attempting to obstruct justice and other offences. (CTV Winnipeg)
