  Public Safety Notification - Sex Offender

Jan 07, 2009 09:36 ET

The Durham Regional Police Service is advising citizens in Ajax that a convicted sex offender has finished his prison sentence and is re-integrating into the community.

Orville Dwayne THOMPSON, age 37, was released from Federal custody yesterday after serving a 13 year, two month and 14 day sentence for Break, Enter and Commit Sexual Assault x3, Sexual Assault x5, Sexual Assault with a Weapon, Forcible Confinement, Utter Death Threats x5 and Carry a Concealed Weapon. These offences occurred over a period of several months in Toronto, Ontario in 1992. His victims included several females ranging in age from 43 years to 76 years.

THOMPSON has remained incarcerated for his entire sentence after being denied parole on a number of occasions. He has been released without supervision conditions and as a result, the Durham Regional Police Service successfully attained a section 810.2 Recognizance through the courts yesterday.

THOMPSON is now under strict conditions, including an evening curfew from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. unless he is accompanied by a chaperone or at work. Other conditions require him to attend counseling, not to possess any weapons and not to contact past victims. These 18 court-imposed conditions will assist officers from the DRPS Offender Management Unit and 19 Division to monitor his activities closely.

THOMPSON has advised the DRPS that he will be residing in Ajax, Ontario with family. He is described as male, black, 37 years old, 6’0” tall, medium build, brown eyes and dark brown hair worn in long dreadlocks.

THOMPSON has served his sentence and is legally within his rights to choose his new place of residence. Police are asking the public to report any suspicious activity directly to 19 Division at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2525. Anonymous tips can be made to Durham Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) and tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
