Are dangerous criminals recently released from prison being permitted to
live in locations that are consistent with their sentencing guidelines
and parole restrictions. Are the most dangerous of those released criminals,
Level 3 Sex Offenders, being properly monitored to assure compliance with
treatment and work related obligations.
New York City just determined that, according to the Sex Offender Registry,
eleven (11) Level 3 Sex Offenders, were residing at the Bellevue Men’s
Shelter in Kip’s Bay, despite the fact that the shelter is located
within 1,000 feet of a school. A spokesman for the Mayor stated that the
information on the Sex Offender Registry was not correct and blamed the
offenders for failing to notify the state when their address changed.
As a result, the addresses of six men were updated on the website and
warrants were issued for 3 sex offenders whose whereabouts are unknown.
Is enough being done to protect the citizens of New York City and Westchester
County from the known recidivist risks associated with recently released
offenders? 1 to 3 percent of all arrests in White Plains are of residents
of the Volunteers of America - Grasslands Reservation Shelter, who are
bused into the City of White Plains each morning from Valhalla, New York.
