Crown wants more jail time for an Abbotsford man convicted of the sexual luring of youth as more allegations have surfaced about an online relationship he was cultivating with a teenage boy.
Jeffrey Allan Goddard pleaded guilty to two counts of breaching parole conditions in November after creating a fictitious Internet persona to trick two 15-year-old male youths into working in his backyard last summer.
On Thursday, prosecutor Sylvia Dormaradzki asked an Abbotsford provincial court judge to sentence Goddard to as much as 180 days behind bars, up from a previous request of a maximum 150 days, because of aggravating factors that have recently emerged in the case
Goddard has been in custody since his arrest Aug. 9 when police discovered he had adopted the alias Ryan Martin Stewart on Facebook in order to make contact with youth online contrary to his parole conditions.
Posing as a landscaper, Goddard "hired" two teenage boys who worked for two weeks fixing fences, laying brick and pruning shrubs.
Goddard didn't make sexual advances towards the boys, but on several occasions the teens ate lunch in his bedroom, where they saw him use a computer to have sexually explicit conversations with other young men.
Dormaradski said police have now confirmed one of the youths was a 15-year-old male from California.
Exchanges between the pair suggest that "they appeared to be in love," she said.
Goddard had also asked the teen how far he lived from the Los Angeles airport and said, "I'm going to try my hardest to come and get you."
When Goddard's was arrested at his halfway house, police discovered two computers, an Xbox and an active Internet account under his name.
Goddard, the subject of three APD public safety warnings, has a criminal history of luring youth for sexual purposes over the Internet.
He got 20 months behind bars in June 2011 after pleading guilty to invitation to sexual touching, luring a child under 16 using a computer, impersonating a police officer and two breaches of bail conditions.
He was released on parole in February, at which time the police alerted the public about Goddard's court conditions that included no contact with youth or any access to the Internet.
Judge Brent Hoy postponed sentencing for a second time until he could get a probation report before making a decision.
Goddard is expected to appear in court again late January.
