Background Information:

James Sheldon JASPER is a 40 year-old male with a criminal record for sexual offences against children, particularly male children.

Of note, on November 25, 2003, JASPER was convicted of a sexual offence against a 10-year old boy. JASPER invited the boy into his car and drove him to a secluded spot where JASPER sexually assaulted him. JASPER was sentenced to 26 months in jail followed by a 10 year long-term supervision order. After completing the prison portion of his sentence, he was released on January 23, 2006. However, JASPER was subsequently convicted of breaching the terms of his long-term supervision order, in 2011 and 2016.

On December 18, 2016, JASPER will be released from the Milner Ridge Correctional Centre, Manitoba regarding the 2016 conviction for breach of his long-term supervision order, and will be subject to the conditions of a three year supervised probation order including:

- Report relationships of any type, including children under 18 years, to his probation officer;
- Not have any contact with, or be in the presence of any person under 18 years except for unavoidable encounters in a public place or except in the presence of a responsible adult approved in writing, by his probation officer;
- Not attend any public parks or public swimming areas where persons 18 years or under are present or can reasonably be expected to be present, or a day care centre, school ground, playground or community center;
- Not to participate in paid or volunteer work that involves regular contact with anyone 18 years or under, or which places him in a position of trust or authority towards those persons;
- Comply with any assessment, treatment, counseling, and/or community programming, as directed by his probation officer;
- No contact with previous victims or their families;
- Observe a curfew between 10:00 pm and 7:00 am, and comply with curfew checks;

Although Mr. JASPER has participated in sex offender treatment programs in the past, he is still considered high risk to re-offend.  Children - young boys in particular - are at risk of sexual violence. Some of JASPER's victims have been "groomed" by him to facilitate the sexual offences.

JASPER is expected to take up residence in Winnipeg.
