SUSSEX – Trevor Dibblee of Penobsquis is now under lock and key after admitting he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl a little more than two weeks into his house arrest order.
The 28-year-old Dibblee appeared in Sussex provincial court Thursdayand changed his plea to guilty of the indictable offence in connection with the crime that occurred on July 18.
He also pleaded guilty to breaching the conditional sentence order handed to him on June 30 for a 2005 sexual assault. Dibblee admitted he was staying in a tent and consuming alcohol, both contrary to his eight-month conditional sentence, when police arrested him on July 18 on the assault complaint.
Meanwhile, he was ordered to serve the remaining six-and-a-half months of his conditional sentence at the Saint John Correctional Centre for the breaching the conditional sentence
Trevor Andrew Dibblee, 34, of Titusville Road pleaded guilty to failing to follow requirements under the Sex Offender Registry Act. Each year he is given a month to contact police to update his address, said prosecutor Jill Knee. Between April 2 and May 2, 2013 he was supposed to confirm his address and failed to do so. Duty counsel Margaret Gallagher said Dibblee had called a police officer to make an appointment to come in to register, but the officer was going on vacation. Dibblee was supposed to call back later, but said he forgot. Provincial court Judge Andrew LeMesurier noted Parliament takes the registry seriously because the maximum fine for failure to comply is $10,000 or two years in prison. The judge fined Dibblee $500 plus a $75 victim fine surcharge. In 2008, he was sentenced to four years in prison for sup plying a 13-year-old girl with liquor and having sex with her.
