BC Corrections is defending the restrictions placed on repeat child sex offender James Conway.
Yesterday Mission’s mayor Randy Hawes slammed the conditions, saying Conway has been placed under house arrest in a house just 40 feet from a school bus stop.
Hawes wanted an explanation from corrections, who have since told CKNW that they don’t have the legal right to remove Conway from that residence as determined by a court order.
“Conway is under the highest degree of supervision,” a statement says adding he’s is on twenty-four seven electronic supervision and wears a GPS-enable ankle bracelet.
Corrections says Conway has been on this level of supervision for the past year without breaking any of his terms.
Conway was moved to Mission after protests in Abbotsford, which in one case saw his house flooded.
