Violent Domestic Offender Released to Ottawa - Jean Guy Tremblay
Pursuant to the Community Safety Act, the Ottawa Police Service is advising the community at large of the release of Jean Guy Tremblay on June 30, 2005. Jean Guy Tremblay (aliases: Joseph Maurice Tremblay, John Mandanichi) was released from Bowden Institution in Alberta at the end of his sentence. He will be supervised by the Ottawa Parole Office at a halfway house as he begins his 10 year Long Term Supervision Order. Mr. Tremblay’s Long Term Supervision Order conditions are: - Must follow psychological counseling - Residency at a community correctional centre/community residential facility for 90 days - Avoid any contact with victims or their families - Must report any relationships entered into with females to his supervisor Background: On August 3, 2000, Tremblay was convicted of Assault Cause Bodily Harm, Criminal Harassment, Forcible Confinement (x2), Assault and Uttering Threats. Tremblay did not seek nor did he receive treatment or counseling during his custodial sentence. He has maintained an un-cooperative stance with Corrections Canada and police. As a result, he is considered a high risk to re- offend. Tremblay’s known criminal past has centered on violence towards women. He meets them through casual encounters or acquaintances and typically lies about his personal details in order to draw her into some form of relationship. He then becomes controlling, abusive and violent to these victims.
