Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police, told Daily Hive Silen was initially arrested in October 2019 and released with a first appearance for a court date for November 22.

“He had limited conditions at that time. Additional conditions noted in the press release were placed on him during court hearings Dec. 5 and 17. Police will be monitoring his conditions,” she noted.

According to his current release conditions, Silen must not engage in any activities that could bring him in contact with persons under the age of 16 years, not possess any device capable of accessing any computer network including the internet, not access any social media sites, and refrain from communicating or attempting to communicate with any person under the age of 16 years through social networking.
