Sex offender Karl Crack has again been placed on a restrictive court order because of fears he will commit a serious personal injury offence.
Ontario Court Justice Nathalie Gregson imposed the two-year order Monday when the 48-year-old man appeared in a Sault Ste. Marie courtroom.
This is the second two-year recognizance that has restricted Crack’s freedom since he was released from prison after serving 65 months for sex offences involving girls.
When he was released from prison, penitentiary, officials deemed the untreated sex offender as a high risk to commit another assault.
The Crown sought the recognizances under a section of the Criminal Code of Canada.
Among the restrictions on the latest recognizance are conditions that require Crack to report to city police once a month and inform police of any change of address within 24 hours of any change.
As well, he can’t attend any park, playground, school ground, public swimming area, arena, daycare, community centre or any place where a person under the age of 16 can reasonably expected to be present.
Crack can’t possess child pornography and can’t have or access any images of children, depicted to be or who appear to be under 16, who are naked or portrayed in a sexual manner.
He also is prohibited from communicating with or being in the company of anyone under the age of 16.
Crack can’t be employed or volunteer anywhere that puts him in a position of trust or authority towards a person under 16.
The order also requires him to automatically surrender his computer to police when requested to ensure his compliance with the conditions.
