High-risk sex offender surrenders
A high-risk, violent sex offender is in police custody after giving himself up on Sunday.
Dean Zimmerman turned himself in to Red Deer RCMP around 8:50 a.m.
He was arrested on his outstanding Canada-wide warrants for breaching his recognizance.
Zimmerman, 47, was convicted of sexual assault, assault causing bodily harm, and sexual assault with a weapon and forcible confinement in three separate cases between 1998 and 2006.
He was released in April from Bowden Institution after having served 34 months on six counts of breach of recognizance for keeping the peace, failure to comply with an order, and fraud under $5,000.
He was set to appear before a Justice of the Peace later on Sunday.
