KATHMANDU, Nepal - (AP) -- A Canadian tourist with several previous child sex convictions has been sentenced to seven years in prison in Nepal for sexually abusing a minor boy, the court said Monday.

MacIntosh was detained by the police in December after the victim filed a complaint with police. Details of the victim were not given because he is still a minor.
Police said he lured the boy to his hotel room in Lalitpur, a suburb south of the capital, Kathmandu
MacIntosh arrived in Nepal on a tourist visa in August 2014, and has been a frequent visitor to the children's shelter where the boy lived.
Canadian news reports said he has 17 child sex offense convictions against him. Why, oh why, was he still able to roam the world looking for victims. 17 CSA convictions should have put this creep behind bars for the rest of his life.
In 2010, MacIntosh was convicted of gross indecency and indecent assault against four boys in the Port Hawkesbury, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia area during the 1970s. He was also charged in 2007 for CSA in 1995, but escaped to India and was not extradited to Canada until 2007. In 2010, he was convicted of the 1995 charges but The Nova Scotia Court of Appeal later quashed those convictions because it took 11 years to bring MacIntosh to trial.
So the secret of avoiding justice in Nova Scotia is just to hide for 10 or 12 years. Or, get a 15 year old girl drunk and rape her.

Nepalese police said they are investigating if there were any other minors involved. Meanwhile, in Canada, two other men who have contacted RCMP with complaints that MacIntosh sexually abused them as boys.
