The RCMP is informing the public of the release of a high-risk offender, Shane Leon Smith, who will be residing in the Aylesford area.
Smith, 36, will be released from Dorchester Penitentiary on Sept. 27 after completing a sentence for sexual assaults and other offences.
Smith has been assessed as being a high-risk offender and has been deemed a high risk to re-offend. His victims have included both males and females ages four to 18 years old.
For two years, Smith will be on numerous conditions including restrictions on any activity, including the Internet, that involves contact with children under the age of 16 years or being within 100 meters of any public park, public swimming area, daycare center, school ground or community center where one might reasonably expect children under the age of 16 to be present.
The RCMP say they are providing this information to alert members of the public of his presence in the community so they may take suitable precautionary measures. RCMP are warning that any form of vigilante activity or other unreasonable conduct will not be tolerated.
