Abbotsford Police have issued a public notice about the release from prison of a convicted sex offender.

Adrian Julian Wilson, 34, is 5′ 6″, weighs 170 pounds, and has short brown hair and brown eyes. He is residing in the Abbotsford area.

According to police, Wilson has a criminal history involving robberies and sex-related offences against men and women. He is considered to be a high risk to re-offend.

In December 2011, RCMP in Comox Valley – on Vancouver Island – issued a similar warning about Wilson, after he was released from jail and was living in that area.

Wilson then did several media interviews, saying he had changed and there was no reason for people to fear him.

He was returned to prison just over a month later for breaching his conditions by entering a liquor store. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four months in jail followed by 18 months’ probation.

RCMP again issued a public notice upon his release from prison in April 2012. He again breached his conditions – within six hours of his release – by drinking alcohol. He was arrested at a bus terminal in Nanaimo and returned to prison.

Wilson was handed a sentence of 407 days, followed by two years’ probation. He was released this week from that jail term.

His previous crimes include the 2002 rape of a 72-year-old woman in Nanaimo, after he had flagged down an elderly couple’s motor home on a highway in Nanaimo. He had just been released from prison that day for a previous offence.

Wilson received an eight-year sentence for sexual assault and robbery.

He has a long list of court-ordered conditions.

They include:

– to keep the peace and be of good behaviour;

– to remain within B.C. unless prior written permission to go outside the province is obtained from the court or probation officer;

– to have no contact, direct or indirect, with any of the victims of the offences or any known members of their immediate families;

– to not be within 300 metres of any known residence, place of employment or educational facility of any of the victims of the offences or any known members of their immediate families;

– to immediately advise his probation officer of any close, intimate, familiar or familial relationship with a male or female, and refrain from continuing with that relationship until that person has been advised of his criminal record in the presence of the probation officer;

– to not possess any weapons;

– to not consume or possess alcohol or any controlled substances, excluding prescription medication prescribed by a licensed physician or dentist;

– to not enter any liquor store, beer and/or wine store, or business whose primary purpose is the sale or distribution of alcoholic beverages; and

– to remain in his residence between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. every day unless with the written permission of his probation officer to be absent or unless in the company of a person named in writing by the probation officer.

Anyone who sees Wilson in violation of any of the conditions is asked to contact their local police. In Abbotsford, the number is 604-859-5225.
