Regina police have charged a convicted sex offender with violating the conditions of a peace bond.

Brian Keith Solberg was arrested after police saw him driving a truck in an area of the city that is frequented by sex trade workers.

The 62-year-old appeared in court Tuesday on a charge of breach of recognizance.

Solberg was released from prison in 2004 after serving a 10-year sentence for a violent sexual assault in B.C.
