A Red Deer man with a history of sexually assaulting other males will be sentenced on his latest conviction in January.
Thomas Paul Ganger, 64, was convicted in September of sexually assaulting a 30-year-old man in a Red Deer hotel room on Jan. 21, 2011, after they met at a trade show.
Court heard during his trial that Ganger and his victim had been drinking with others after the trade show. Concerned that the older man was not sober enough to drive, the other man offered Ganger a spare bed in his hotel room.
The victim testified that he awoke to find Ganger in his bed fondling him. The younger man fled to a friend’s room and police were called.
Defence lawyer Dave Inglis asked Red Deer provincial court Judge John Holmes on Thursday to order a pre-sentence report.
Holmes also ordered that a qualified forensic psychiatrist undertake a risk assessment.
“I would also like treatment recommendations,” said Holmes.
Ganger returns to court on Jan. 17 for sentencing.
Crown prosecutor Tony Bell has previously said he will seek jail time.
Ganger was convicted in 2005 of sex offences involving four teenaged boys who complained of being fondled during interviews for work with the food and laundry contractor at a Red Deer care facility.
Ganger was chairman of the 1998 Alberta Summer Games, held in Red Deer.
