A 70-year-old Central Alberta man was sentenced to a federal jail term after pleading guilty on Friday to sex-related offence against two children.
Robert Charles Williams was sentenced to two years in prison when he pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual interference and a single count of inviting sexual touching.
Crown prosecutor Jason Snider told Red Deer provincial court that Williams was caught about a month go shortly after he emerged from a bedroom where he had been in bed with a boy and a girl both less than 14 years of age.
Williams was caught by an acquaintance and police were informed.
Williams touched the boy on his buttocks before the boy left the room and was found standing outside the door by the acquaintance, Judge Bert Skinner was told.
The young girl was fondled by Williams, who also forced the girl to touch him.
Skinner heard Williams served a prison sentence about 12 years ago for a more serious sexual offence against children.
Snider said Williams was co-operative with police and confessed to them when he was arrested in mid-August.
Williams must also surrender a sample of his DNA to authorities and is prohibited from owning or possessing firearms and ammunition for 10 years.
In addition, Williams’ name will be placed for life on a Canada-wide sex offender registry.
He is also prohibited from ever being near any place where children may frequent such as playgrounds, recreation centres and schools.
