Gracie has been convicted of sexual offences against children including sexual assault and forcible confinement.

There was no word specifying where in town Gracie intends to reside.

Police issued the warning through a public interest notification under a section of the Privacy Act of Canada that states the public interest in making a disclosure clearly outweighs any invasion of privacy that could result from said disclosure.

James Leo Gracie is described as standing six-foot-two inches tall and weighing 176 pounds with brown hair, hazel eyes and tattoos — a Slim Jim and rattlesnake on his right arm, and heart leaves and a heart on his left arm.
