Police warn of high-risk child sex offender living in Red Deer

The RCMP have issued a public warning in regard to the release of a well-known sex offender that plans to make his home in Red Deer.

James Daryle Hill

A man convicted numerous times for exposing himself in public to young children and girls was released from jail Friday.

RCMP are warning the public that James Daryle Hill is a high risk to reoffend.

The police issued the rare public warning in regard to the release of the 53-year-old Red Deer man.

Hill was released from custody after completing a 120-day sentence for committing an indecent act.

He has served several short sentences for similar convictions in the Red Deer area.

RCMP are issuing this information and warning after careful deliberation and consideration of Hill’s level of threat to the community.

Hill’s latest conviction occurred this spring when he exposed himself to a young girl in a toy store at a Red Deer mall.

He has a lengthy criminal history of committing sexual offences against young females in Alberta. Police say Hill represents a significant risk to sexually offend against young females and poses a considerable threat in the community.

Police say the intent of the warning is to enable members of the public to take suitable precautions and not to embark on any form of vigilante action.

Hill is 1.67 metres (five feet five inches) tall and weighs about 66 kg (145 pounds). He has brown eyes and brown hair.

Hill will live in Red Deer and is bound by a six-month probation order.

Under the terms of his release, Hill is to abide by the following conditions:

• Not to attend any public park or public swimming area where persons under the age of 14 years are present or can reasonably be expected to be present, or daycare centre, school ground, playground or community centre.

• Not to seek, obtain or continue employment, whether or not the employment is remunerated, or become a volunteer in a capacity that involves being in a position of trust or authority towards persons under the age of 14 years.

• Not to use a computer system for the purpose of communicating with a person under the age of 14 years.
