Police are warning the public that a sexual offender, at high risk to reoffend, is living somewhere in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

Wayne Stanley Crawley, 53, has just been released from a federal prison after serving a full two-year sentence for sexual assault.

He has multiple past convictions, including sexual offences against children and adults, that date back to the 1970s, Const. Brian Palmeter, a spokesman for Halifax Regional Police, said Thursday.

He has also been assessed as being at high risk to commit further sexual offences.

“He is on conditions designed to restrict his contact with children under the age 16. If someone were to see something that they feel is a violation, they should contact police,” Const. Palmeter said.

Mr. Crawley must abide by a number of conditions which are intended to keep him away from children under the age of 16. He is free to travel outside Halifax Regional Municipality, according to police.
