LETHBRIDGE: A convicted sex offender accused of breaching his probation conditions,
entered several guilty pleas Thursday.
On May 15th, 2013 members of the High Risk Offenders Unit learned of the breach.
The accused was under conditions that he have no contact with females under the
age of 18, and that he not access the internet or possess devices capable of

probation and 20-years on the Sex Offender Information Registry.
Under the terms of Billings probation was not to own or possess a computer or
device that can access to the internet. He's also not allowed to have the

supervised by an adult who knows about his conviction or if it's a family

instead of pushing for their initial request of a sentence between 18-months and
