UPDATE: Convicted Sex Offender in Brampton Taken into Custody
A convicted sex offender has recently been taken into custody.
On Friday, March 22, police advised the public that 36-year-old Madilyn Harks (formerly Matthew Harks) would be living in the Main Street and Queen Street area.
Harks has been convicted of sexual assault against young females under the age of eight, and was deemed to be at an elevated risk to re-offend.
Following outrage from some Brampton residents, including Mayor Patrick Brown who called Harks a monster, Harks has been taken into custody.
Brown reported this afternoon (Friday, March 29) that her long term supervision order is rescinded and she has been returned to a secure facility.
This news comes very soon after city council passed a motion requesting Harks be removed from the city.
Harks is in custody. Long term supervision order is rescinded & has been returned to a secure facility. This serial pedophile is no longer a threat in our City. Thanks to the @PeelPoliceMedia for their ongoing work protecting public safety in #Brampton! #brampoli #onpoli #cdnpoli— Patrick Brown (@patrickbrownont) March 29, 2019
