A dangerous offender hearing is underway in a Calgary courtroom today for a man convicted of torturing his former roommate.
Dustin Paxton was found guilty last year of aggravated assault and sexual assault.
He was arrested in 2010 after a badly beaten and emaciated man was dumped at a Regina hospital.
If declared a dangerous offender, Paxton would be jailed indefinitely.
