Thirty-eight-year-old convicted sex offender Louis Phillipe Myre will be released from a corrections facility and plans to live in Whitehorse.

“As Myre poses a moderate to high risk of reoffending, the RCMP has decided to release a public notification to raise community awareness and enhance community safety,” according to a police release.

Myre is on statutory release and is under strict supervision by the Correctional Service of Canada until 2009.

In 2003, Myre was convicted of one count of sexual interference, two counts of possessing child pornography, numerous theft and fraud charges and breaches of court orders.

Myre is a Caucasian man with a heavy build with black hair and brown eyes.

He is approximately six-feet tall and weighs 110 kilograms.

Under the conditions of his release, Myre is not to have contact with people under 14.

He is not to enter a daycare centre, school ground, playground, community centre, public park or public swimming area where persons under the age of 14 are present or can reasonably be expected to be present.

He is not to get a job or volunteer at a place where he may be in a position of trust or authority over somebody under 14.

Myre is not to possess, purchase or view any pornography.

And he is to follow psychological counselling.

Anyone who sees Myre violating any of the conditions is asked to contact the local RCMP. (LC)
