Elvis Pa­trick Labobe gets strict con­di­tions on day pa­role, banned from travel to P.E.I.

A Scotch­fort man who was sen­tenced to two years in prison af­ter com­mit­ting sex of­fences on three chil­dren has been granted day pa­role.

Elvis Pa­trick Labobe was sen­tenced in July 2016 for in­vi­ta­tion to sex­ual touch­ing, ex­pos­ing his gen­i­tals for a sex­ual pur­pose and two counts of sex­ual in­ter­fer­ence.

In a re­cent de­ci­sion, the Pa­role Board of Canada said Labobe’s re­lease on day pa­role would con­trib­ute to pub­lic pro­tec­tion by fa­cil­i­tat­ing his rein­te­gra­tion into so­ci­ety.

Labobe ex­posed him­self to three chil­dren, per­formed a sex act on one of the girls and had a boy per­form a sex act on him.

The board wrote in its re­port that Labobe said he was sorry for what he did and that his vic­tims didn’t de­serve it.

While serv­ing his sen­tence, Labobe un­der­went a sex of­fender as­sess­ment that es­ti­mated his risk of sex­ual re-of­fend­ing was in the up­per-mod­er­ate range.

His need for sex of­fender treat­ment was es­ti­mated to be in the lower-mod­er­ate range, the board said.

While on day pa­role, Labobe must fol­low strict con­di­tions, in­clud­ing that he not be near chil­dren or places where they are likely to con­gre­gate un­less ac­com­pa­nied by an adult his pa­role su­per­vi­sor ap­proves of.

Labobe is also banned from trav­el­ling to P.E.I.

Dur­ing his day pa­role, Labobe must un­dergo coun­selling, in­clud­ing for de­viant sex­ual ten­den­cies.

In re­view­ing Labobe’s case, the board also im­posed spe­cial con­di­tions on his statu­tory re­lease, which will be in Novem­ber.

Those con­di­tions were sim­i­lar to those the board im­posed on Labobe dur­ing his day pa­role.
