Walter Maxwell Sharpe, 55, was charged with committing a sexual assault against a person under the age of 14 and also touching that same girl’s breast for a sexual purpose.
The incidents are alleged to have occurred between Dec. 31, 2004 and Oct. 25, 2006 and the charge was laid on Jan. 10.
Sharpe had been serving two years of house arrest prior to his arrest in early January 2008, as part of a conditional sentence he was placed on in November for committing four offences against a girl. He was also given a jail term for those crimes, but was released from custody because he had already spent 12 months on remand, which is the equivalent of a two-year sentence.
Sharpe, has 15 sex offences against young people on his record, was also designated a long-term offender for the next 10 years.
Sharpe’s last know address was on Dominion Street.
