Calgary Police is warning the public about the re-release of James Alexander Parent.
He was arrested last week but an investigation revealed there was nothing to the charges.
Parent will continue to be monitored by Correctional Service Canada which includes electronic monitoring.
The 58 year old is out on statutory release from Bowden and is living in Calgary. Parent was sentenced to 6 years for sexual assault with a weapon, sexual assault causing bodily harm. He was arrested after technological advances pointed to him as the felon in the violent sexual assault of a Calgary woman in 1987.
Parent’s past criminal convictions also relate to offences against a child.
The Calgary Police Service says it’s issuing this information and warning after careful deliberation and consideration of all related issues, including privacy concerns, in the belief that it is clearly in the public interest to inform the members of the community of the release of Parent.
