A high-risk violent sex offender with a lengthy criminal record plans to live in Vancouver, said B.C. Corrections in a public notification issued on Monday.

Robert Allaby, 53, has been convicted of charges that include violent sexual offences against male children and teens.

In 2004, the former minor hockey coach was sentenced to six years in prison for sexually abusing the young son of a former girlfriend.

His criminal record also includes:

  • Assault with a weapon.
  • Assault causing bodily harm.
  • Sexual interference.
  • Invitation to sexual touching. 

Allaby was living in Saskatchewan and now plans to live in Vancouver — B.C. Corrections says it cannot release the specific location due to privacy laws. 

Allaby is subject to 15 conditions; he is not allowed to attend public areas where there are or could be people under the age of 16. He's also not allowed to have any contact with children under 16. 

"I can assure you that B.C. Corrections, police and other agencies will do all we can to protect citizens and work closely together to monitor Mr. Allaby to ensure he abides by all his court-ordered conditions," said B.C. Corrections spokesperson Amy Lapsley in a written statement.
