Convicted Sex Offender Pleads Guilty to Breaching Probation

 
 

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 accessing the internet.

 

The specific details of the breaches were not revealed, however they are expected to be read into the record at sentencing.

 

A pre-sentence report has been ordered for Kevin Allan Billings, with sentencing set for February 27th.  However, the Crown did tell the court that they'll be looking for between 18-months to two years behind bars.

 

After pleading guilty to the original charges of child luring and possession of child pornography in November of 2010, Billings was sentenced on March 3rd, 2011. 

 

Billings had been arrested on February 24th, of 2010, after an investigation found he was trying to meet young girls over the internet, specifically talking to two girls online. He was sentenced to 18-months in custody, followed by three years 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 internet connected to his home, or attend a anywhere for the purpose of using the internet with the exception of work.

 

Billings was also to stay away from any women under the age of 18, unless supervised by an adult who knows about his conviction or if it's a family member.

 

In addition to that, Billings was ordered to take counselling specifically geared towards sex offenders.

 

Both the Judge and his defence council referred to Billings as having "challenges" and "intellectual deficits". That was considered part of the reason why the Crown submitted the sentence as a joint proposal with the defence, instead of pushing for their initial request of a sentence between 18-months and two years.
