Liberated sexual predator charged again

Liberated sexual predator charged again

Prison-wingQuebec City (Quebec) August 7, 2014 – A man serving time for sexual agression and harrasment who had been released from prison earlier this year has been charged with the same offence only four months after being freed. M. Yvon St. Amand has been charged once again with sexual aggression and sexual contact towards an 8 year old girl just last June. He appeared in court yesterday Aug. 6 to face the charges.

The accused has been charged in the past with sexual harrassment, sexual aggression and domestic sexual violence and was sentenced to 26 months in prison in 2013. He was released after serving only 2/3 of his sentence, a normal practice in correctional services. He had also been arrested in 1999 on similiar charges. When arrested in June of this year M. St. Amand was in possession of several articles of suspicion such as rape drugs, rope, machete, latex gloves and vaseline.

M. St. Amand had been living with a friend in the Lotbinière area who has two young children and was finally picked-up at the Laubrivière Shelter for the homeless on Tuesday, in Quebec City. The crown attorney wants M. St. Amand kept behind bars until his sentencing, not only for the potential of committing more crimes but also because of breach of parole which he is guilty of, on two counts, since his release in early April.

His Lawyer will have a difficult task trying to have his client released on bail.
