TORONTO — A Canada Post supervisor admitted impersonating an immigration officer and using threats of deportation to extort sexual favours from an immigrant woman from the Philippines.
Raymond Coles posed as an Immigration Enforcement Agency official after accessing information from his work computer and obtaining personal details regarding his first of two victims, Crown attorney David Fisher told a Toronto court.
Coles used the computer to order an immigration officer’s badge and to download photos of nude Filipina women.
Coles, 43, pleaded guilty last week to impersonation, two counts of extortion by threat of deportation in June and August, 2012, and to committing sexual assault on Aug. 28, 2012. He will be sentenced on Nov. 15.
Coles contacted the first victim on June 22, 2012, identifying himself as officer Robert Adems, and demanding she meet him in northwest Toronto. She agreed.
Coles told her to write a letter incriminating her friend -- a second victim -- in a marriage fraud.
