“While in federal custody, Blaney was assessed as a high risk to re-offend sexually,” said Const. Anne Longley. “(He) poses a risk of significant harm to the safety of adult women in the city.
While on parole, Blaney must abstain from alcohol and non-prescription drugs and report all intimate relationships with women to his parole supervisor.
Anyone who sees him violating these conditions is asked to call 9-1-1.
