A sex offender considered a high risk to reoffend has settled in Prince Albert.

The former Saskatoon resident has a history of exposing himself to and masturbating in view of both male and female children of prepubescent to teen years with whom he comes into contact with in public places.

His probation order includes;

McKnight is also prohibited by the Provincial Court of Saskatchewan until June 10, 2021 from:

• Attending a public park or public swimming area where persons under the age of 16 years are present or can reasonably be expected to be present, or a daycare centre, schoolyard, playground, or community centre;

• Seeking, obtaining or continuing any employment, whether or not the employment is renumerated, or becoming or being a volunteer in a capacity, that involves being in a position of trust or authority; towards persons under the age of 16 years;

• Using a computer system for the purpose of communicating with a person under the age of 16 years.

McKnight is also on an Alberta probation order until Dec. 15.  The terms of that order include;

    Seriously, could you not just leave people like this in prison, the jail is right there; and if it's full, send him to one of the other penitentiaries that Harper is building: Oh wait, that's for American convicts, right... Something very disconcerting about this picture. Thanks for sharing.

    Our justice system hard at work as usual!!! Why are these freaks let out of jail if they have a high risk of re-offending again?

    Having worked with Sexually violent predators for several years in California,I can assure you that the likelihood of a person with this history to recommit,is very high. Unfortunately there will be another victim or victims,before he is taken off the streets again.
