Raymond Lee Caissie served 22 years in jail for a sexual assault incident in Abbotsford.

Just seven months since being released after serving a 22-year jail sentence, a convicted sex offender admits to shoplifting.

Raymond Lee Caissie, 42, pleaded guilty to theft under $5,000 on Feb. 11 at Surrey provincial court. The offense involved merchandise at a Surrey Winners store on Oct. 27, 2013. Caissie was sentenced to 21 days in jail and $100 victim surcharge.

On Jan. 28, 2014, Caissie was also sentenced to three months in jail and three years’ probation for breaching a peace bond. Last month, Caissie pleaded guilty to failing to report to a parole officer on Nov. 14, 2013.

Caissie spent 22 years in prison on convictions of violent sexual assault involving a woman in Abbotsford. On July 21, 1991, Caissie entered Trethewey House, which housed the MSA Museum Society, and threatened the 21-year-old summer student behind the counter with a knife. He forced her to remove her clothes and sexually assaulted her twice. He then transported her across the U.S. border to a forested area, where he sexually assaulted her again before tying her to a tree and fleeing.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault with a weapon and one each of forcible confinement and robbery in connection to the incident.

Caissie was released in June 2013 with conditions including not possessing a knife except for eating or possessing any other weapon or restraint tool, and keeping the peace.
