Police warn public of sex offender’s release By LAURA FRASERCape Breton Bureau

Mon. Mar 9 - 2:17 PM

SYDNEY — Police have issued a warning about a 53-year-old man released Friday from the Dorchester Institution after serving a full three-year sentence for assault causing bodily harm and sexual assault on a minor.

Mr. Lloyd made a brief appearance in Sydney provincial court after the Crown requested an order that would impose conditions upon the man’s release. Mr. Lloyd agreed to the court order Friday.

The man was sent to the New Brunswick prison after he was convicted of assaulting one of his former partners for the fourth time.

Court documents show that Mr. Lloyd tried to strangle the woman and bite off her nose, saying he wanted to make her so ugly no other man would want her.

He was also serving time for sexually assaulting a minor. That charge involved a different complainant.

Some of Mr. Lloyd’s sexual offences against children date back to 1984, according to Cape Breton Regional Police.

Mr. Lloyd’s release raised serious worries about the community’s safety, Crown attorney Darcy MacPherson said.

But since the man had already served his full sentence, he did not have to go on parole.

Friday’s court order falls under two sections of the Criminal Code designed to protect both children and the public from violent or sexual offenders, Mr. MacPherson said.

Mr. Lloyd must register as a sex offender, stay away from anyone under the age 16 and cannot contact two of his former partners, according to the conditions.

He must inform police if he plans to leave Cape Breton.

The man had neatly combed grey hair and steel-coloured glasses and wore a navy parka and jeans when he stood before the judge. He has blue eyes and weighs 215 pounds, according to a release.

Mr. Lloyd said little at the beginning of the hearing. He later questioned Judge Brian Williston about the specifics of the conditions, particularly on how far away he had to stay from parks.

The conditions will be in place for a year.

Nova Scotia man guilty of 1970s sex crimes against boys
 
PORT HAWKESBURY, N.S. - A former Nova Scotia businessman has been convicted of 13 sex crimes against boys in the 1970s.

Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh had faced a total of 26 charges of indecent assault and gross indecency involving three complainants.

The charges against the 67-year-old MacIntosh go back 15 years in a case that required prosecutors to extradite him from India.

Three complainants testified earlier this month that MacIntosh repeatedly fondled and performed oral sex on them when they were between 11 and 14 years old.

They alleged the incidents occurred in the 1970s in various locations around northeastern Nova Scotia.

During his testimony, MacIntosh admitted performing oral sex on two of the complainants but said they were older than the age of consent at the time and that it was consensual.

Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice Simon MacDonald called MacIntosh's actions "repugnant" and ordered him to be held in custody pending a future sentencing hearing.

In delivering his verdict Tuesday, MacDonald said he found the evidence of the first complainant credible but had difficulty with some of the evidence provided by the second complainant.

During the trial, the now middle-aged complainants testified they were severely traumatized by their sexual encounters with MacIntosh, and did not come forward for years out of fear and embarrassment.

The first complainant told the court he believed there had been more than 100 incidents of fondling or oral sex, saying the encounters were "routine."

He originally brought forward allegations of repeated sexual fondling and oral sex to RCMP in British Columbia in 1995. About a year later, MacIntosh was charged.

But by then he had left Canada to set up a business and residence in India.

The Mountie who investigated the complaint said he first called MacIntosh in New Delhi in January 1996 to tell him there was a warrant for his arrest.

MacIntosh claimed the phone went dead before he heard of the warrant, and — though he said he was "curious" — he never called back. In 1997, he was told his passport wasn't being renewed due to the criminal charges.

Extradition proceedings started in 1997 but were marred by delays. New allegations of abuse came forward in 1999. Prosecutors halted the extradition as police checked into those allegations.

MacIntosh was extradited to Canada in June 2007.

Defence lawyers had applied for a stay before the Nova Scotia Supreme Court, saying MacIntosh's right to a fair trial had been damaged by "abhorrent" delays. The court refused the application, concluding that MacIntosh was responsible for the delays because he didn't voluntarily return to Canada to face the charges.

The trial is the first of two MacIntosh is facing on a total of 36 charges of indecent assault and gross indecency.

Police say the man alleges he was assaulted by another prisoner while in the back of a sheriff’s van.

The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police say the investigation is in its preliminary stages and they still have to interview several more witnesses.

A report in the Halifax Chronicle Herald quotes an unidentified inmate at the jail as saying the victim of the assault was convicted sex offender Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh.

A source confirmed the victim was MacIntosh, whose bid for bail was dismissed by a Nova Scotia Court of Appeal judge in Halifax earlier in the day.

No dangerous offender label for Lalo
Last Updated: Wednesday, August 4, 2004 | 4:26 PM AT
CBC News
Convicted pedophile Cesar Lalo could be out of jail in five years, despite an attempt by prosecutors to have him locked up indefinitely.

On Wednesday, Justice Heather Robertson dismissed the Crown's recommendation to have Lalo declared a dangerous offender. Instead, she designated him a long-term offender and sentenced him to nine years in prison.



Cesar Lalo (file photo)

That designation is for offenders who are likely to commit more sex crimes but may be managed with treatment and proper supervision.

Once Lalo is released, he'll be under strict conditions for 10 years:

•reside in a halfway house for two years
•undergo chemical castration to suppress sexual urges
•provide police with DNA sample
•stay away from anyone under 18 unless supervised
•avoid shopping malls, playgrounds
•no driving without a supervisor
Lalo, 63, was convicted of sexually assaulting 29 boys from 1973 to 1989 while working as a probation officer and social worker.

He has already served nine years for his crimes. Taking into account the time he has spent in jail awaiting trial, Lalo will be eligible for release in about five years. He'll be almost 70.

Lalo showed little reaction when Robertson read out her decision Wednesday. When asked if he had anything to say to the court, Lalo said no.

Crown prosecutor Catherine Cogswell says Lalo has been sentenced to a total of 18 years, which is "either the highest or the second highest sentence given to a pedophile in Canadian history."

One victim who was in court commends the prosecutors and detectives in the case. "[Lalo's] life will definitely ... be very strictly controlled so he won't be playing any golf," says the man, who cannot be named because of a publication ban.

Former N.S. probation officer Lalo released from prison
Province working on 20 outstanding claims from alleged victims
Last Updated: Friday, September 18, 2009 | 7:52 AM AT Comments9Recommend7.
CBC News
 Cesar Lalo, one of Nova Scotia's most notorious child abusers, was released on parole from the Kingston Penitentiary in Ontario two weeks ago, after serving five years for sex crimes against boys.

Lalo, 69, was found guilty of sexually assaulting 29 boys from 1973 to 1989 while working as a probation officer and social worker with the province of Nova Scotia. He was sentenced to nine years in prison.

He had been charged with more than 100 counts of attempted buggery, indecent assault and gross indecency.

The National Parole Board said Lalo will be closely watched for the next 10 years. Lalo recently began chemical castration treatment for his sexual deviancy.

Twenty of Lalo’s victims still have outstanding claims against the province for the abuse they suffered while children. The province has settled with five victims, paying out $262,000 in total.

Justice Minister Ross Landry said Thursday that the outstanding lawsuits are moving forward.

"My sympathies go out to anyone who has been violated," Landry said. "It takes time. I am monitoring it, and that's the best I can do in this stage of the game."

'I still carry this big hurt'
A Halifax man who alleges he was sexually abused when he was 11 years old by Lalo wonders why the settlement is taking so long. He filed his lawsuit against Lalo in 1996.

“I still carry this big hurt inside. I carry so much stuff inside. I think, I know, I need more counselling,” he said.

The man claims that he was raped repeatedly over the course of six months by Lalo, who was his probation officer.

He points to the recent $13-million settlement with alleged victims of sexual abuse by priests with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Antigonish.

"You’ve got to realize their victims didn't have to go to court. Their victims settled without having to go to court," he said.

In 2007, Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice Frank Edwards found the province was vicariously liable for the abuse by Lalo, who was a provincial employee at the time. He awarded $640,000 to one Lalo victim, known only as B.M.G. in court documents, who had been sexually abused four times over three months.

Nova Scotia, Sex Offenders: Pedophile, rapist, murderer


Pedophile rapist murderer Mark Garnet Aylward, no longer  a dangerous offender, court says

2009 10 02

By DAVENE JEFFREY
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, Nova Scotia
http://thechronicleherald.ca/Metro/1145447.html

A Nova Scotia murderer and child rapist will no longer be considered a dangerous offender, a Nova Scotia Court of Appeal panel has ruled.

In a decision released Thursday, Mark Garnet Aylward has instead been given a 12-year sentence for the sexual assault of a 14-year-old Halifax boy at gunpoint in May 2006. At the time, Mr. Aylward was on parole for murdering a teenage boy in Springhill in 1987. His parole was revoked and he went back to prison to continue serving his life sentence.

Mr. Aylward also has a previous conviction for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy in 1988, while on bail awaiting trial on the murder charge.

Provincial court Judge Castor Williams declared Mr. Aylward a dangerous offender in November 2007. As a dangerous offender, Mr. Aylward would have been held in prison until he was considered no longer a risk to the public.

Judge Williams had refused a joint Crown and defence request to declare Mr. Aylward a long-term offender and impose a 12-year sentence for the 2006 assault. As a long-term offender, Mr. Aylward would have been under strict community supervision for 10 years after he finished his sentence.

But in Thursday’s decision, Justice Nancy Bateman wrote that both Crown attorney Catherine Cogswell and Judge Williams had made mistakes during the sentencing.

According to the decision, Ms. Cogswell conceded that she had not followed the proper procedure and had not sought permission from the attorney general to make the long-term offender application.

Sex offender's release prompts warning

http://thechronicleherald.ca/Metro/1192261.html
By KELLY SHIERS Staff Reporter
Sat. Jul 17 - 4:54 AM


Roger Mercier


Halifax police are warning that a man with a history of molesting children has been released from a federal penitentiary and is now living in the community.

Roger Edouard Mercier, 41, has been assessed as being a high risk to reoffend. He was released after serving his full 25-month sentence for sexual assault and failure to comply with an undertaking.

Mercier’s record shows multiple convictions dating back to 2000, including sex-related offences.

In 2002, the former teacher was convicted of sexually assaulting five children while he was teaching in British Columbia. He was acquitted of trying to hire a hit man to kill the prosecutor in that case.

According to an earlier Chronicle Herald report, Mercier moved west in the mid-1990s after being accused of touching students while he was teaching in the Annapolis Valley.

In 2007, Mercier was convicted of sexually assaulting a seven-year-old Dartmouth girl.

In 2008, Mercier pleaded guilty in Halifax provincial court to sexually assaulting an eight-year-old boy, whose mother he had started a relationship with. He also pleaded guilty to failing to comply with an undertaking.

Back then, the Crown applied to have him declared a dangerous offender and imprisoned indefinitely. But the application was abandoned after a psychologist determined Mercier posed a relatively low risk of reoffending compared to other inmates and required "rather modest" treatment, The Chronicle Herald reported.

Judge Castor Williams did order that Mercier be banned from going to parks, schools and other places frequented by children unless accompanied by someone age 25 or older. The judge also imposed a weapons ban on Mercier. According to police, Mercier has been ordered not to have contact with children under the age of 14. He is described as a white man, five-foot five, 176 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

HALIFAX - A bail hearing has been put off for a week for a convicted sex offender who was released from custody for a while because Nova Scotia corrections officials failed to take him to court on time on other charges.

Robert Thomas Crowe, 22, of Cole Harbour asked for the adjournment when he appeared in Dartmouth provincial court Wednesday.

Crowe is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Dartmouth on June 27.

He was arrested two days later and charged with sexual assault, anal intercourse without consent and breaching probation.

Crowe was released July 5 after an order to keep him custody expired before he could appear in court.

He was arrested three days later and police laid a new set of charges alleging four additional offences in connection with the attack - unlawful confinement, sexual assault causing bodily harm, robbery and breaching a peace bond.

Crowe appeared in court July 9 and consented to be remanded until Wednesday's court appearance.

Judge Hughes Randall rescheduled the hearing for July 21 and sent Crowe back to jail.

Crowe is still on probation for sexually assaulting two teenagers on a Cole Harbour pathway in August 2007. He was sentenced in May 2008 to 18 months in jail, followed by 16 months of probation.

A provincial Justice Department investigation into Crowe's release found that precautions in place to ensure people in custody are properly transferred to court were not followed.

Justice Minister Ross Landry said last week that "immediate action" is being taken to shore up procedures.

This guy had to be set free from the first charges because of clerical error/timing.... he had to be let go because he wasn't put on the court list.  :o

This makes me sick. To see how many pedophiles we have just in this province alone is maddening. Who is protecting our children and does the justice system really care.

It is also sickening to see others that were in a position that people trusted with their children to only find out they were being abused by these pedophiles. They were people such as priests, bishops, teachers, ministers, politicians, judges, etc.

I believe these people should spend at the least 15 years in prison and then wear an ankle bracelet so there whereabouts are known at all times. We have to protect our children because it is obvious no one else will.

I haven't shown all the culprits in the above pics....just the ones that operate in NS...... The rest are on the link at the top.  They are from across the country.  I deliberately put the whole list because these creeps move around when the heat is on.  You have to watch out for them all! So the others from across the country are at the link 5 posts above this!
Some are woman haters alone.  Some are purebred pedophiles.  Some are animals who attack and sexually torture anything they can.  ....Couldn't be trusted with the cat in my opinion.

I well try to find the pics missing (Police always take them down to protect the perp's Rights!!!!

As I come across others, I will list them.  If the page gets too long, I will try to get time to do it in excel.

Lost, this is great that you have listed those pictures on here. I certainly will be looking at the face of the ones that are from N.S.  With all the shooting that is going on in Halifax, I believe they have the guns pointed in the wrong direction. It is hard to contain oneself when these low life creeps could be anywhere in your neighbourhood and you would not know. And it is also hard to treat these sickening individuals as ordinary neighbours, how could anyone treat them normal. Their addresses are supposed to be known to the public. I certainly will be heads up because of the young people, I will certainly take notice. :o :o :o :o :o

If something isn't done with our criminal justice system in Canada, i really do believe that people are going to start vigilanty justice...life sentence should mean life.  What is wrong with this country or this world, when these sick F*@!*s have more protection and rights than law abiding citizens, or even better, innocent children.  I know if my child, (God, Allah, Buddha, or whatever you believe in, forbid) I would go Dexter on any predator's ass.  Where are our rights?  Use these pieces of shit for medical testing and put my tax dollars to good use.

justice; it's hard to figure out the best course for these things.... If the animals all get DNA listings, then there's more risk, they'll rape to kill/dispose of.  Bad enough that most raped for years to scare/use again.  Now that they have to worry about their DNA on a victim, they will turn into killers for sure.  The vigilante approach is crossing a lot of minds.

One time you would hear it said, lock them up - they guys in prison know what to do with child molesters.  Now they have protection rights, which gets them solidarity in more safe and comfortable environment with "guess what" other pervs.

We are going backwards in this regards for sure.... always the kids who get the dirty end of everything!
