A former Montreal police officer who carried out a series of sex-related attacks on 10 victims while he worked for the police force has been granted permission to drive a car on his own. Some conditions continue to be imposed on his release from a penitentiary.
The Parole Board of Canada recently decided to remove the driving condition imposed on Benoît Guay after police found him in an idling car near a strip bar late one night in October 2016. The police officers who approached him would later say that Guay, now 47, appeared to be either watching a house or waiting for someone. He had difficulty explaining what he was doing and failed to inform the officers that he was a convicted serial sex offender who had been declared a long-term offender.
