WINNIPEG – The man convicted of abducting his children and fleeing to Mexico will spend more time behind bars on unrelated sexual assault charges.
Kevin Maryk, 45, pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges that date back to 2004 and lasted for about a year.
As part of a joint recommendation between his lawyer and Crown attorneys, Maryk was sentenced Tuesday morning by Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Chris Martin to four years in prison, but was given two years of credit for the time he has already serve.
Maryk will also be registered as a sex offender for the next 20 years and will have to provide his DNA to authorities. He has also been banned from owning a weapon for the next ten years.
The accused did not speak in court and showed no emotion when he was handed his sentence.
Maryk first made headlines after taking off to Mexico with his two children in 2008. He kept them hidden there for years, before police finally found them in a townhouse in Guadalajara 2012.
In June 2014, he pleaded guilty to two counts of abduction. He was sentenced to four years in prison, but with credit for time already served, his prison was reduced to 374 days.
