Investigators with the Sexual Assault Investigation Team of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division have charged a male Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) employee with sexual assault, breach of trust and extortion stemming from incidents that occurred in 2003 when he was an immigration officer.
This matter was initially reported to police on November 24, 2014 and the investigation has been ongoing since that time. Based on the investigation, it's alleged the CBSA employee used his position of authority as an immigration officer over a then 26-year-old woman, who was scheduled to be deported in June 2003, by extorting and sexually assaulting her on more than one occasion in Dartmouth that same year.
Investigators travelled to Montreal on April 1 and arrested 55-year-old Carie Dexter Willis of Pierrefonds, Quebec without incident and returned him to Halifax. Willis was remanded over the weekend and appeared in Dartmouth Provincial Court on April 4 to answer to the charges, after which he was released. He is scheduled to attend court again on May 9.
This information was not released prior to Willis’ court appearance on April 4 as it would have jeopardized the investigation.
