A man convicted of sexual assault and aggravated assault has been released from jail.

Winston George Thomas, 36, was released from Headingley Correctional Centre on Friday.

Police say he is considered a high risk sex offender.

In March 2007, Thomas and two other men met up with a woman in Winnipeg. The three men took her to a home, drank liquor and smoked marijuana and kept her from leaving. Thomas then engaged in a sexual act with the woman.

He was later arrested.

A year later he was sentenced to two years less a day for sexual assault, which was then followed by three years of probation.

Thomas did participate in sex offender treatment programs while in prison but is considered a high risk to re-offend.
