Con­victed sex of­fender to live in Win­nipeg

Metro Canada (Winnipeg) - - WINNIPEG -

A con­victed sex of­fender was re­leased from Head­in­g­ley Cor­rec­tional In­sti­tu­tion Dec. 23, ac­cord­ing to the Man­i­toba In­te­grated High Risk Sex Of­fender Unit. Win­ston Thomas is ex­pected to live in Win­nipeg.

Thomas, 37, is be­ing re­leased after serv­ing his five- month sen­tence for breach­ing his pro­ba­tion terms. He didn’t follow his cur­few and was found by po­lice in­tox­i­cated the next day.

Thomas was pre­vi­ously charged with sex­ual as­sault in 2007 when Thomas and two other men met a 13- year- old girl at a shop­ping cen­tre. They took her to a res­i­dence, gave the girl liquor and mar­i­juana, and then pre­vented her from leav­ing. Thomas then sex­u­ally as­saulted the vic­tim and was ar­rested a short time later.

Once re­leased, Thomas must follow the con­di­tions of his pro­ba­tion or­der: no pos­ses­sion or con­sump­tion of al­co­hol, il­le­gal or non- pre­scrip­tion drugs, and strict ad­her­ence to a cur­few.
