The RCMP have issued a public warning about the release of a sex offender.
James Daryle Hill was released from custody Oct. 13 after completing a four-month sentence for committing an indecent act.
Police say Hill, who will be residing in Red Deer and is bound by a two-year probation order, has a lengthy criminal history of committing sexual offences against young females within Alberta.
Hill, 54, is described as a significant risk to sexually offend against young females and poses a considerable threat in the community.
Hill stands 167 cm (five ft. five in.) and weighs 66 kg (145 lb.)
He has brown eyes and brown hair.
Hill’s probation order has several conditions to address community concerns, including not to attend any public park or public swimming area where persons under the age of 14 are present or can reasonably be expected to be present, or day care center, school ground, playground or community center.
He is also not to seek, obtain or continue employment, whether or not the employment is remunerated, or become a volunteer in a capacity that involves being in a position of trust or authority towards persons under the age of 14. The order also states that he is not to use a computer for the purpose of communicating with a person under 14 years of age.
Police have released this information after “careful deliberation and consideration of all related issues, including privacy concerns, and the belief that it is clearly in the public interest to inform the members of the community of the return of Hill to this area.”
