Man faces deportation over sex acts

A Clive-area farmer must fight deportation after being sentenced on Tuesday for performing sexual acts in the homes of four neighbours. Emyr Morris, 31, was arrested and charged after one of his victims used video surveillance to determine who was going into her bedroom and replacing her underwear with soiled lingerie that belonged to someone else.

A Clive-area farmer must fight deportation after being sentenced on Tuesday for performing sexual acts in the homes of four neighbours.

Emyr Morris, 31, was arrested and charged after one of his victims used video surveillance to determine who was going into her bedroom and replacing her underwear with soiled lingerie that belonged to someone else.

Morris pleaded guilty on June 19 to four counts of break and enter with intent to commit mischief.

In Red Deer provincial court, Judge Bill Andreasson ordered that Morris serve consecutive sentences on each charge, totalling 18 months in jail and followed by 18 months on probation.

Because each of the jail terms is under six months, Morris will have the ability to appeal a deportation order, which will follow the convictions.

A British citizen who was 15 when he and his family immigrated to Canada, Morris is now inadmissible because he has been convicted of a major crime.

Any sentence greater than six months would have made him unable to appeal deportation, which was a consideration in passing sentence, said Andreasson.

He remarked that Morris’s willing and successful participation in treatment has made him a low risk of reoffending and that, as a mixed farmer with four quarter sections of land, he is a significant contributor to the local economy.

Along with the jail term and probation, Morris was ordered to continue counselling for his sexual addiction and is prohibited from owning or viewing pornography.

He is also prohibited from contacting any of his victims or attending the homes of those who still live in the area.
