High risk sex offender Christopher Neil, known as ‘swirlface’, plans to reside in the City of Vancouver.
Neil served time in Thailand several years ago for a string of sexual offenses against children.
He was arrested when he flew back to Canada in 2012 and Vancouver police later announced 10 fresh charges against him.
Six involved sexual touching and producing child porn in Cambodia.
The others related to accessing and possessing child porn here in the Lower Mainland.
He became known as ‘Swirl Face’ because police had come across pictures of child abuse in the initial overseas investigation, but the man’s face was obscured by a swirl.
The 42-year-old is 5’10”, weighs 190 pounds, and is described as Caucasian with balding brown hair and blue eyes.
Officials say he has a pattern of sexual offending against both pre- and early pubescent boys.
Neil is subject to 18 court-ordered conditions, including a ban on contact with anyone under the age of 16, not engaging in any activity that would bring him in contact with someone under 16 – including through a computer, and staying away from schools, playgrounds, pools, and parks.
