Child molester living in Delta

DELTA – Even Delta’s mayor, Lois Jackson, doesn’t know where high-risk sex offender James Conway will be staying in her municipality.

 

"I haven’t been informed," Jackson told the Now. He could be in North Delta, Ladner or Tsawwassen.

 

"It’s very troubling to me," Jackson said. "It certainly warrants a story about the justice system and the protection of the many."

 

Delta Police issued a public notification Tuesday that Conway, 40, has been released from custody and will be moving to Delta. Sgt. Sarah Swallow said authorities are not divulging the community Conway will be staying in because "we want people to be aware of him everywhere. What we want people to be aware of is that he is the subject of strict monitoring both by caseworkers, BC Corrections and police," Swallow said. "However, if he is in the company of a supervisor or caseworker, he is able to travel around as long as he is not breaching his conditions. As such, we have taken the steps to release his photo and identity so that people can be aware of him and if he is seen

 

breaching or if there is any concern, the public can call police immediately."

 

In February Conway was released into Surrey but was yanked back into jail nine days later for allegedly violating his conditions.

 

This time, he is subject to electronic monitoring, is under house arrest and is not allowed to leave his place of residence without being escorted by a caseworker. Police ask anyone who sees Conway violating his conditions to phone 911 immediately.

 

In Surrey’s case, Mayor Linda Hepner found out about Conway’s release into her city by reading a news feed across the bottom of her television screen.

 

Conway’s criminal history includes sexual interference of a person under 16, sexual assault, arson damaging property, and breaching court orders. Conway is an imposing six feet, four inches tall and 276 pounds. He’s white with brown hair and blue eyes.
