"Dangerous Offender" Hearing Next Year For Yarmouth Man

A court in Kentville will hold a hearing next year on whether a Yarmouth man will be declared a dangerous offender. Gordon Frank Nickerson pleaded guilty to charges including kidnapping, sexual assault and dangerous driving in April. A psychiatric assessment of the 35-year-old is now in the hands of the provincial court and an application is scheduled to be heard next April and May. Nickerson was arrested in February near Kentville after police responded to a report that two women were missing from the Wedgeport area. The women were later found at the scene of a three-vehicle collision in New Minas.
