Sussex New Brunswick Sex Offender

A 30-year-old Sussex man is off to jail for another year for sexually touching and committing a sex act on a female child under age 14.

Dwight Herbert Jathan was sentenced to jail and two years probation for the summary offence in Sussex provincial court on Thursday.

He pleaded guilty on May 1 to the sexual interference, which occurred in Sussex between Nov. 1, 2007 and April 22, 2008. At that time he was released on a court undertaking to stay away from the victim and her family but failed to comply with the order two days after it was issued.

Crown prosecutor Gerald McCracken said on April 18 the child told an adult friend of the repeated incidents, which Jathan told her to keep secret.

Jathan's pre-sentence report shows he is unemployed with no ambition to work.

Jathan had a prior record but none of his previous charges are similar in nature to this crime.

For two years Jathan will be on probation. He is to have no contact with the victim or her family, report to a probation officer and receive any treatment made available to him for sexual predators.

He must also provide a DNA sample for the national databank and he will be registered as a sex offender for 10 years.

This is my sons father and I hope he rots in there. The only reason he has not been charged with this before is his family hid it when he was 15 he did his sister and she was 7 at the time. If anyone knows this man please make sure you tell him that he is a goof and he shouldn't be alive. My child who has a beautiful step family will be better off without him.
