WINNIPEG – The Manitoba Integrated High Rick Sex Offender Unit (MIHRSOU) is warning Winnipegers about a recently-released sex offender who is considered high-risk to re-offend.

Police say Cecil Junior Houle, 44, who also goes by Chubby Houle and Junior Houle, has a history of violent sex offences and women, in particular, are at risk.

He’s expected to live in the Winnipeg area.

Houle was convicted of manslaughter of his common-law wife and of sexual assault causing bodily harm of an 18-year-old woman in 2006.

Police say he participated in some treatment while serving his sentence at the Headingley Correctional Centre, but is still considered high-risk.

Houle is subject to a probation order until 2022 and a lifetime weapons ban.
