Former foster father convicted

PICTON - A former Children's Aid foster parent in Prince Edward County has been convicted of sex crimes against a foster child.

Richard Fildey, 46, of Cameron, Ont. was found guilty of sexual assault, touching a person under the age of 16 for sexual purpose and sexual exploitation by Justice Wolf Tausendfreund in Picton court Thursday.

Charges laid against Fildey in 2012 stem from incidents involving an 8-year-old foster girl that occurred in Bloomfield from 2003 to 2004.

Tausendfreund is scheduled to sentence Fildey in Belleville court on Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Prince Edward OPP Const. Kim Guthrie said back in November 2012 those charged – Fildey and three others – are no longer foster parents and charges stem from their time serving the Children's Aid Society of Prince Edward.

The historical cases involve three female complainants and allegations of sexual assault and child pornography dating back more than a decade.

Addendum: On August 19 Fildey was sentenced to 30 months behind bars, and his name is on the national sex offender registry for life.
