CRANBROOK, B.C. – Admitted child abductor Randall Hopley “made the bogeyman real,” a British Columbia judge said Thursday as she ordered a psychiatric assessment for the man.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Heather Holmes ordered a 60-day assessment to determine whether Hopley should be labelled a dangerous or long-term offender.

Hopley abducted three-year-old Kienan Hebert from his home in Sparwood, B.C., last September, only to return him unharmed several days later.

Holmes said Kienan and his family appear to have moved on from the ordeal, but she said the impact of Hopley’s crimes could have been far worse.

“In my view, common experience tells us there’s nothing more frightening to parents than to lose a child,” Holmes told a court.

“Mr. Hopley made the bogeyman real in their home. It seems like victims of such an event will never feel safe in their home again.”

The judge noted the Hebert family decided not to file a victim impact statement.
