THUNDER BAY - A man who has previously been convicted and sentenced to five years for charges of sexual assault has been arrested again and is now facing a new charge.
Gary Bruce Lamont, 60, was arrested by the Thunder Bay Police Service and charged with sexual assault with a weapon following the execution of a warrant. The charges stem from between Dec. 20, 2021 and Jan. 7, 2022.
The Crown did not consent to his release during a brief court appearance via video from the Thunder Bay Police Service headquarters on Tuesday. Lamont was remanded into custody at the Thunder Bay District Jail. His next court appearance is Jan. 13.
Lamont has previously pleaded guilty to five counts of sexual assault from incidents that took place between 1993 and 2007. He was arrested in December 2013 and additional charges were laid in February 2014 and May 2014. The five male victims were between the ages of 17 and 24-years-old.
Lamont was sentenced to five years and credited with 93 days of pre-sentence custody. He was also subject to a 20-year requirement to comply with the Sex Offender Registry and a 10-year weapons prohibition.
Justice John Fregeau said at the time of sentencing that Lamont was a “serial sexual predator” and used a clear pattern to target and exploit victims.
