RCMP in Penticton are posting a warning about a dangerous sex offender who recently moved to the city.
Don Michel Bakker was released from prison on May 31, in the Lower Mainland.
Bakker, a father of one, was given a 10-year jail term in 2005 for an array of sex crimes including sexual assault, sexual assault causing bodily harm and invitation to sexual touching after videotaping assaults on young girls between the ages of seven and 12 in Cambodia.
He was also convicted of attacking three Vancouver women in the sex trade, sadistically abusing them and videotaping the assaults.
According to police, Bakker has been deemed a high risk to re-offend sexually and poses a risk to the safety of females under the age of 18-years-old and to women in the sex trade.
Some of Bakker's conditions include, not possessing any pornographic material, not possessing or accessing any personal computers or electronic devices, not possessing any cameras, video cameras or any device capable of capturing images and he is under a curfew from 11 p.m. until 6 a.m. daily.
