Waskahat, who was recently released after
serving a sentence for breaching a court order, will be residing in the
Edmonton area. Waskahat has been ordered
to abide by a probation order for two years in the community as part of the
release and will be supervised by a Probation Officer.
Waskahat has a history of possessing, making
and publishing child pornography involving male and female infants under 3
years of age. Waskahat is a risk to children when caring for them
(i.e. while babysitting) and has also been known to take voyeuristic photos of
infants in public. The EPS believes
Waskahat may try to associate with someone who has young kids in order to groom
them for offending behavior. Waskahat
has also been known to frequent female public bathrooms (e.g. in shopping
malls) in order to carry out voyeuristic offending behavior.

ordered conditions including:
· To keep the peace and be of good behavior;
