A Calgary man will have to wait another day to find out if he'll be deported to his native Lebanon.

Louay Khalil was convicted of two counts of sexual assaults in 2009. Since then, he's been charged with two more sex crimes — charges that were stayed in the last two weeks.

The 35-year-old sex offender will remain in the custody of the Canada Border Services Agency until his immigration status is decided.

He was ordered out of the country in 2011 because he is believed to be a risk to the public and the serious nature of his offences.

Khalil came to Canada in 2006 after he was sponsored by his then-wife.

More details will be released when his detention hearing resumes on Thursday.

  • An earlier version of this story said Khalil was charged with three more sex crimes after his 2009 conviction. In fact there were two, both later stayed.
