Sex offender back in jail

A Red Deer serial sex offender was sentenced to another federal jail term when he pleaded guilty to a sex offence and dangerous driving in Edmonton last week.

A Red Deer serial sex offender was sentenced to another federal jail term when he pleaded guilty to a sex offence and dangerous driving in Edmonton last week.

Kevin Lorne Valley, 45, was jailed for four years and three months on Friday.

Valley, who had served a previous federal jail term for indecent exposure and attempted sexual assault of a child, will serve a little more than three years after time spent in custody is deducted from his sentence.

Court heard that on Sept. 20, 2008, Valley was caught in the indecent act by an off-duty police officer in Edmonton. The officer spotted Valley peering over a hedge at a woman pushing a baby carriage in front of her home.

Valley quickly pulled up his pants and fled in a vehicle.

The officer noted the licence plate number and pursued the culprit but gave up the chase when Valley was clocked at speeding at 110 km/h in a residential neighbourhood.

He again fled from police when they tried to arrest him at a halfway house.

He then hid out, living in the vehicle for two weeks before he was arrested in early October 2008.

Valley pleaded guilty to indecent exposure, dangerous driving and two breaches of a long-term supervision order.

The 10-year order stems from a six-year sentence for attempted sexual assault, possession of child pornography and an indecent act committed in the Blackfalds and Red Deer area in early 2000.

When Valley was released from Bowden Institution, in 2005 police issued a public warning.

The Crown said on Friday that Valley remains a high risk to re-offend.
