ONTARIO: Brampton sex offender back in custody

MADILYN Harks, an offender was who was recently released into the City of Brampton and was residing in the Main Street and Queen Street area, was arrested on Friday by Peel Regional Police.

The arrest is a result of a joint effort between our Offender Management Unit, 22 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau and Correctional Services Canada.

Correctional Services Canada issued a warrant of suspension revoking the Long Term Supervision Order that Harks was bound by, allowing police to take Harks into custody. At this time no criminal charges have been laid.

On March 22, Peel Regional Police first made the community aware of a public safety concern regarding Harks. She had been subject to three sexual assault convictions against young girls under the age of eight and is at an elevated risk to reoffend.
