EDMONTON – Police are warning the public about a sex offender being who will be living in Edmonton after being released from prison.
Ronald Joseph Fabien, 52, is being released from the Bowden Institution after completing a sentence of three years and three months for sexual assault and failing to comply with a recognizance order.
Police say Fabien “poses a risk of significant harm to the community.” He will be monitored by the Edmonton police’s Behavioural Assessment Unit.
Fabien has a lengthy criminal history which started in 1994 when he was sentenced for two counts of sexual contact with a child. It also includes convictions for sexual interference in 1999, sexual contact with a minor in 2005, and sexual assault in 2008 and 2011.
In May 2006, Edmonton police issued a similar warning to the public about Fabien after he was released from prison.
At that time, police warned that Fabien posed a risk of significant harm to the community, especially to children.
