A man with convictions of violent sexual offences has been released from custody again.

On Tuesday, Sept. 13., Patrick Vincent Rodman appeared in provincial court in Williams Lake and pleaded guilty to his most recent charges from July when he had breached conditions of his order and was subsequently arrested by the Williams Lake RCMP. Police say that while in custody, he was charged with two additional and separate criminal offences.

The RCMP say that on Tuesday he was sentenced to time served in custody for the July offences.  Justice Elizabeth Bayliff also modified an existing condition where he was now to reside at his residence in Horsefly.

Other conditions still include:

• that he shall not be in possession of any knives except for the preparation and consumption of food;

• that he not possess, own, or carry any weapon, including any firearm, crossbow, prohibited weapon, restricted weapon, prohibited device, ammunition, prohibited ammunition, explosive substance, or any related authorization, licences, and registration certificates, nor is he to possess any imitation firearm or imitation of those items listed in this condition;

• that he shall not have contact with anyone under the age of 16 years, save and except (in part) incidental contact;

• that he must not enter any daycare centre, school ground or playground; and

• that he must not attend any public park or swimming area where persons under the age of 16 years are present.

On June 20, Rodman’s long-term supervision order had expired in relation to convictions involving sexual offences. Prior to his release at that time, he was placed on a Sec. 810 Peace Bond with strict conditions and had moved to Horsefly.

With his release back into the community of Horsefly, the Williams Lake RCMP say they will continue to monitor Rodman’s compliance with the imposed conditions.
