An Abbotsford man with a history of sexual assaults who was recently released from prison is now living in Mission, according to police.
Mission RCMP issued a public warning over the weekend that Taylor Dueck, 25, is residing in their city. Police say that Dueck is subject to strict court-ordered conditions, including that he: not possess or use controlled substances, only be outside between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m., and not possess any weapons.
Dueck is 5’ 11”, weighs 130 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.
He was previously thought to be living in Abbotsford.
Dueck was released from prison on Feb. 3 after serving his full sentence of three years and seven months for sexual assault and assault with a weapon. He is now serving a one-year conditional sentence (which is served outside of prison) to be followed by three years’ probation.
Parole board documents previously obtained by The News say that Dueck was responsible for the violent sexual assaults of four teenage girls in 2014.
There were several other allegations of sex crimes that Dueck was never charged with, including kissing a five-year-old girl, groping a nine-year-old girl while playing hide-and-seek, and threatening to post sexually explicit photos online of a girl if she did not have sex with him.
Dueck was previously denied day and full parole. In its decision, the Parole Board of Canada said Dueck was being denied because there were “reasonable grounds” to believe that he was “likely to commit an offence causing death or serious harm to another person.”
The board noted that, although Dueck had taken sex-offender and other programs in prison, he continued to minimize his offences and was resistant to talking about them nor did he have a release plan to manage his risk in the community.
Mission RCMP is urging anyone who notes any suspicious behaviour, including, but not limited to, a breach of the above conditions to contact the detachment at 604-826-7161.
