A former Mountie and sports coach convicted of sexually abusing young boys in British Columbia and Saskatchewan has been granted day parole.
The Parole Board of Canada denied Alan Davidson full parole but ruled the 64-year-old likely won’t present a risk under day release with special conditions.
Davidson was sentenced to almost six years for abusing seven boys in the late 1970s and early 1990s.
Court heard that Davidson’s offences began in British Columbia, where he abused boys he met through coaching hockey and baseball.
Davidson was later hired as an RCMP officer and worked in Saskatchewan, where the court heard he targeted two other boys, and he was working as a deputy sheriff in Calgary when he was arrested in 2014.
