Former Babysitter Charged With Multiple Child Sex Offences In Both Ontario And BC
Former babysitter charged with multiple child sex offences in both Ontario and B.C.
A sex offender has been convicted in not just one, but two provinces. A former babysitter has been charged with multiple child sex offences in both Ontario and B.C. 33-year-old Wesley Clarkson is alleged to have sexually assaulted different young girls under the age of 10 in B.C.
He also currently faces similar charges in Ontario, where he is alleged to have sexually assaulted a female child on several occasions from February 1, 2019 to March 12, 2019.
He was also charged with sexual assault in Ontario back in 2015. The suspect was previously known for being a babysitter during the same time he allegedly committed the offences, according to Global News.
The New Westminister Police released a news statement to the public revealing that Clarkson had been charged yesterday on April 3. In B.C., the suspect faces five counts of sexual assault and five counts of touching for sexual purposes a person under the age of sixteen years, says their news release. He is currently in police custody and will have to appear in court.

Just a day after his charges were announced in B.C., the Windsor Police Services said today in a news statement that Clarkson had also been charged for sexual assault in Ontario.
Windsor Police have now charged Wesley Clarkson with sexual assault, sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching, breach probation and breach prohibition order.
"Wesley Clarkson is currently in-custody in British Columbia for similar offences, involving female victims under the age of ten years, from that jurisdiction," reads the news release from Windsor Police Services.
"Detectives from the NWPD Major Crime Unit believe there could be more victims who have yet to come forward," said Sergeant Jeff Scott in the New Westminister Police news release.
"The victims of these alleged offences are all girls who were under the age of 10 years old at the time. Mr. Clarkson has been convicted of similar offences in the past in Ontario."
Police are now asking more victims of Clarkson's alleged offences to come forward with information. They are asking to either contact Detective Michelle White at 604-529-2536 or to reach out to their local police department.
