Pedophile released to halfway house
A convicted pedophile from Dartmouth will get a statutory release to a halfway house under a number of conditions.
Arthur Stanley Gallant, 42, has no leave privileges and can’t be around children 16 and younger without supervision, according to a National Parole Board decision this month. He must report all intimate relationships, is prohibited from accessing cameras, can’t use a computer, can’t drink alcohol or use drugs and must take counselling and drug treatment.
In 2003, he received an eight-year sentence for sexual assault, sexual touching and making and possessing child pornography. The offences took place in his apartment, which was in his mother’s Dartmouth basement.
The parole board noted his previous releases. In 2008, he admitted to smoking crack in his room, and in 2011, he got another four months added to his sentence when he was found to have used alcohol during a leave.
