Sir Brent Habetler entered into a peace bond in Lloydminster court Wednesday not to be at any day care, swimming pool, youth centre or place where there are children for one year.

LLOYDMINSTER –  On Wednesday, a Lashburn, Sask., man entered into a 12-month peace bond not to be at any swimming pool, daycare, day school, or youth centre, according to the Vermillion courthouse.

Brent Habetler, who legally changed his name to Sir Brent Adair Habetler, was arrested in March and charged with committing an indecent act in a public place, and willfully obstructing, interrupting or interfering with the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property, the community swimming pool, thereby committing mischief. Those charges were withdrawn in Lloydminster, Atla, court on Nov. 15.

In March, Saskatchewan RCMP said that in the interest of public safety, they were advising the residents of the Maidstone RCMP  detachment area and surrounding communities of an offender who had been charged with committing an indecent act and the RCMP said that he was at high risk to reoffend.

According to a Feb. 17, 2000, story in the Prince George Free Press, Habetler, then 22, was charged with two counts of committing an indecent act and exposing himself for a sexual purpose. The story states that on Jan. 8, 2000, police received a report that a man had lured a 10-year-old girl into the washroom at the Elksentre where he committed an indecent act.

Habetler was arrested and released on bail on strict conditions. He was barred from all fast food restaurants, the Elksentre and all public places where young girls may frequent such as playgrounds. Following a trial in July 2000, one charge was dropped and he was acquitted on the other charge.
