Gaudry case rescheduled to January

Former Delta official will return to court in new year to face indecent assault charge.

Former Corporation of Delta employee Kip Gaudry will return to Vancouver Provincial Court in January to face a sex charge dating back to the 1970s.

Gaudry, 60, was scheduled to plead guilty Wednesday (Dec. 14) to allegations of indecent assault on a female in Winnipeg in 1973, but the case has now been put forward to Jan. 11.

The former director of engineering for Delta is currently serving an 18-month sentence for possession of child pornography. He had worked in Delta since 2001 and quit his job in 2009 after police searched his home and office and seized computers and hard drives. They found thousands of images and videos of young children being abused. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced last January.

Gaudry also served time in the mid-’90s after pleading guilty to nine counts of sexual assault that police said involved young people. Those charges were committed while he was working in Houston, a small community in northwestern B.C. Gaudry served three-and-a-half years in jail.

In 2003, The Leader learned about his sex assault conviction, but chose not to report it because court records showed he had no sex-related charges since he finished his prison term. Gaudry told the newspaper he had paid his debt to society. He had also applied to get a pardon for his 1995 conviction.

In 2004, the municipality tightened their requirements so would-be civic employees have to reveal whether they have a criminal record that “may be relevant to the person’s employment” rather than simply checking ‘yes’ or ‘no’ when asked to disclose if they had a record.
