Police are warning Nova Scotians about the release of a high-risk offender with multiple sexual assault convictions and victims under 14 years old.

Jamie Alan Goreham, 42, is being released from the Calgary Correction Centre this Saturday after completing a sentence for sexual assaults and other offences.

Nova Scotia RCMP said in a release Friday they must notify the public, especially those in the Barrington area of the province, according to the Release of High Risk Offender Information Protocol.

Goreham has criminal convictions dating back to 1991 that include sexual assault and sexual interference.

He has been assessed as being at a high risk to re-offend, and police said his victims have included girls under the age of 14.

Goreham will be on probation for two years and must follow strict conditions including restrictions on activity that involves kids under 16, and abstaining from drinking or possessing alcohol.

RCMP said the release is meant to alert members of the public to Goreham’s presence so people may take precautionary measures, but any form of vigilante activity will not be tolerated.
