BARRINGTON - According to provincial police, a high-risk sex offender could be moving to Shelburne County.

Jamie Alan Goreham

 Nova Scotia RCMP issued a press release Jan. 22 advising citizens, particularly in the Barrington area, of Jamie Alan Goreham’s release.

“There is a strong indication that he will be living in Barrington,” said RCMP spokesman Const. Mark Skinner “There is a high risk to reoffend… there is a risk to the community.”

The 42-year-old was scheduled to be released from the Calgary Correction Centre Jan. 23 after completing a sentence for sexual assaults and other offences.  Police say Goreham has criminal convictions dating back to 1991, including convictions for sexual assault and sexual interference involving girls under the age of 14. His last sentence for sexual assault was imposed in 2009. Goreham has been assessed as being at a high risk to re-offend, the RCMP say.

Goreham will be on probation for two years and will be required to follow strict conditions - including restrictions on any activity that involves contact with children under the age of 16 - and is not allowed to consume or possess alcohol.

“This information is provided to alert members of the public of his presence in our community so they may take suitable precautionary measures,” read the release. “RCMP is warning that any form of vigilante activity or other unreasonable conduct will not be tolerated.”

    The problem actually lies in the system itself. When criminal minds slip quite easily into the Judicial system, what else are we going to expect. These slithery things know full well the thing is going to re-offend and yet they purposely put these animals back out into society.

    Judges consider justice served, we need some not so liberal judges, putting sicko's in jail until it is determined they won't reoffend.

    why are high risk offenders allowed where they can do damage ? how many lives does he have to destroy before he is locked up for good ? i know it comes with great cost to the country but what else is there at this time ? is it worth children being subject to this indecency ?

    i do not get where his rights are above the rights of all canadians. if it determined that there is a high risk of him offending again, then the laws should be changed to him staying where he is till he is deemed fit to be back in society.. ffs, if he were caught with weed, he would have been put away for life

    It is lifelong criminals like these and how the "correctional" system treats them that leads many Canadians to conclude we have a Legal system, but not a Justice system.
