Serial pedophile Shaun Pater to remain in jail

Pater was convicted in 2013 of sexually assaulting two young girls in separate instances.

Serial pedophile Shaun Pater will remain in jail, awaiting a trial on his latest set of charges. Pater was convicted in 2013 of sexually assaulting two young girls in separate instances.

Since his release from jail he has been regularly petitioning the court to loosen his probation restrictions to allow him to have access to children.

On December 11th Pater asked the court to allow him to attend a Christmas dinner where children would be in attendance, and he was permitted to be there, as long as his father Nels was there to supervise him.

On December 31st, Port Alberni RCMP say they caught the 34-year old Pater printing pornographic pictures of young girls.

A recent Facebook posting of Pater’s photo and a description of his alleged crimes has been shared more than 3,000 times.

He was to appear in Port Alberni Provincial Court on Thursday, January 15th for a bail hearing, but he chose to remain in custody at the Vancouver Island Regional Correctional Centre in Victoria. He’s scheduled to be back in court on January 29th facing charges for production and possession of child pornography and breach of probation.
