Toronto police are alerting the public about a man’s release from prison because of “his potential to re-offend against children.”

James Alfred Cooper, 79, was released from prison on Monday following a 21-year sentence for several charges, including sexual intercourse with female under age 14 and two counts of rape.

The other counts include assault cause bodily harm, buggery, sexual assault, five counts of gross indecency and three counts of indecent assault.

Conditions of his release include a weekly report to the police, not to be at any daycare centre, school ground, playground, arcade, public swimming area, or public park, to not have any contact with anyone under 16, and not to be in any kind of relationship with a parent or guardian of children under the age of 16 until that person has been identified to the police.

Police said he will be living in Toronto.
