Bruce Nelson - Repeat Sex Offender - Reoffended After Only 2 Months

A convicted sex offender told to stay away from schools and children less than two months ago was arrested Tuesday after allegedly exposing himself to two teenage girls.

Bruce Nelson, 49, of Pinawa was arrested after two girls in their early teens complained a man flashed them in the town about 120 kilometres north-east from Winnipeg.
Nelson pleaded guilty in April to possessing child pornography and indecent exposure after sending explicit photos of nude children to strangers over the Internet, and flashing a five-year-old and nine-year-old in Pinawa in 2008.

He was given eight months time served and was under probation when he was arrested this week.
Mounties from the Lac de Bonnet detachment arrested Nelson Tuesday within 30 minutes of the alleged indecent exposure incident.

He was arrested close to an area school, said police.

"25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years"
.........Sarah Tofte

"On average most sex offenders are never caught again for a new sex offense, after five years, between 10 and 15 percent of sex offenders are detected, often convicted, of committing a new sex offense. If you follow them for ten years the rates go up somewhat, if you follow them as long as we’ve been able to follow them, which is about 20 years, the rates go up to somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the total sample will eventually be caught for a new sex offense."
