A high-risk sex offender who preys on young boys is going back to jail for more than a year.
Ryan James Gabourie will spend another 398 days in jail after he pleaded guilty this afternoon to breaching terms of his probation.
Gabourie served seven years in prison for sexually molesting five young boys, between the ages of 5 and 11, court was told.
He was released in 2011 on strict terms, which included not using or possessing a device that can connect to the Internet. But he was arrested in June 2012, after police learned he had created a profile on Facebook and was contacting young boys.
Gabourie served a six-month jail stint for that breach and was released Nov. 13, again with conditions that he not access the Internet.
Police placed Gabourie under surveillance and officers found him the day after his release at the Millennium Library, where he was using the Internet.
Court was told that Gabourie had not responded to sex-offender treatment in prison and was considered a narcissistic pedophile who is at a high-risk to offend again.
Provincial court Judge Michel Chartier accepted a joint recommendation from defense and Crown counsel for an 18-month sentence, which included the 142 days he had spent in custody since his arrest in November.
