Sentence delayed for man with history of sex assaults

Sentencing for a Red Deer man with a history of sexually assaulting males has been delayed.

Sentencing for a Red Deer man with a history of sexually assaulting males has been delayed.

Thomas Paul Ganger, 65, was convicted in September of sexually assaulting a 30-year-old man in Red Deer hotel room on Jan. 21, 2011, after they met at a trade show.

Last November, Red Deer provincial court Judge John Holmes ordered a pre-sentence report on Ganger. A psychiatrist was also ordered to undertake a risk assessment with possible treatment recommendations.

Crown prosecutor Tony Bell said on Thursday he had yet to receive the requested reports.

The case returns to court on Jan. 31 for possible sentencing.

Ganger was convicted in 2005 of sex offences involving four teenaged boys who complained of being fondled. He served a nine-month conditional sentence, followed by 18 months of probation.

The Crown prosecutor has said he will be seeking jail time for the latest conviction.
