Barger lists his address as: Monastery Road and Rt 981.

Adelphoi Village -- group home for kids -- is at that location.

Andrea i guess we should be thankful that he hasn't been convicted since 2005 right? Or maybe he just hasn't been caught again? He has a list of multiple violent offenses and i would bet that it went on long before 1996 and probably will happen again. This isn't someone that should be in close contact with children period. He is listed as a violent sexual offender and anyone listed as such will be listed like that for life.
No special 10 year listing and he can try again without being listed.
LES MOM I'm glad there are people like you that look out for children and do your homework. Keep us posted on the outcome.
Actually, Lat, we should be thankful that he hasn't been convicted since 2005 because maybe that means he hasn't had the chance to do it to someone else. Do you honestly think I was defending him? No. I volunteer for the Blackburn Center and I volunteer at a rape crisis hotline in Pittsburgh. Someone had asked what he was convicted for, I posted the facts. Sheesh you are pretty uptight and looking for an argument anywhere, aren't you?

No, not uptight or arguementative sorry you took it that way. You stated he hadn't been convicted since 2005. Just because he hasn't been convicted doesn't mean he hasn't done anything recently is all i meant. He is a repeat offender and now putting himself around children, that is not good. As i explained to fwr this type of thing gets my blood boiling. I grew up in foster homes due to abuse. I deal with foster children now and do a lot of volunteering. Never ever should a child abuser be taken lightly. One time is too many and the fact that he is now hanging around his temptation only means bad news for his next target and he should be stopped before another conviction gets added to his resume.

He seems to have been convicted of a few things, but again, it's not well-established what those were.

Since you seem to be his defender, why don't you explain a little more about the situation, and also explain why he lives outside, when he could live indoors, at least at 333 Main Street, which seems to rent to anyone?

This is just to update all the concerned and rightfully so residents of the Latrobe area. As of yesterday, May 11 2011, the Greensburg State Police went to where he was staying, with his mother, and told him he had to go. As of today, May 12, 2011, Robert Karl Barger Jr. is in Westmoreland Regional Hospital for a suicide attempt. So your children are safe for the time being. To get the story straight, he was married years ago and he did in fact molest his stepdaughter, she did not lie. Barger actually had holes drilled in the wall to be able to see her undressing. Someone posted she was 19, she was not 19 but under the age of 15, and didn't want Barger to get her mom's money. She had no money. She was on disability due to a heart condition. Barger is in fact on the Megan's Law list as a violent predator and will never be removed from that list. And that is not the only reason he is on that list. He was convicted of molesting another minor girl. For anyone who has information, the Greensburg State Police has their own who monitor the sex offenders in the area. All you have to do is call them and ask to speak to whomever is in charge of the Megan's Law list. They are very concerned. Some people complain about him living too close to a public school, as I was told, they (meaning these sex offenders) have a right to live somewhere and there is nothing they can do about it. Someone else stated on here about Barger getting assistance. Barger does receive assistance cash, food stamps, and the medical card. So he has to be claiming to be living somewhere because the assistance office has to have a verifiable address, they won't even accept a P.O. box. However, the State Police can find no record of this. The explanation for that is he is going under someone else's who is listed as head of household. All anyone of us can do with children is to keep an eye on them all the time. Barger is not the only sex offender out there and I am quite sure there are plenty more who have not been caught. Be thankful for the Megan's Law list as it is a great tool for all us parents in helping to keep our children safe.

Why was he told to leave his mother's home? does he "act out" or have behavioral anger issues? does he use drugs? too much alcohol?

Frankly, I hope that he is released to a group home, where he can live with other men, perhaps men who are like he is, where they have "help" that comes into the group home, who stay in the group home, to ensure that the men are there, are taking medications that they need, are monitored, and accounted for.

While this man's behavior sounds unforgivable, as liberal as I am, and as conservative as I am, this man should not live on the creek-banks of Latrobe; no one in Latrobe; or in the 6th most-populated state in the union, PA; or in the whole country, should live on creek banks.

Make him wear an ankle bracelet, inset a GPS device into his muscles, so the government can track his location at all time, but an American living on the banks of a "small town" with 36 churches? Bicycle Bob, living in the fields?

I really hope that the STATE and all its Social Welfare programs, with layer after layer after layer of Bureaucrats, can find him a room, in which to live, with medication for his depression, and help for his "predilection".

They are only being "persecuted" and "judged" on something that they were already convicted of. I and other parents have every right to be able to protect our children. he lost all rights when he molested a child. The fact that scum like that are allowed on the streets to destory other lives is completely wrong. Repeat deviates should have NO rights. If you feel for him invite him to live with you but i sure as hell don't want something like that near any child.

Deviants should be away from children, you're right. That is why a group home, or a compound, monitored, is where these people could live, if they can't get their "impulses" under control. Sadly, it's a mental affliction, for which there is little medication help, and also, little psychotherapy help.

------Society has had sexual deviants, in regard to children, since the beginning of time. What is a modern way to deal with them?

-----Letting the guy live out in the open, without an address, without being monitored, is worse than requiring him to live in a monitored housing compound of some sort.

-----Did he lose his rights to freedom? I think, in some respects, he should lose his rights to NOT BE MONITORED. Hence, the inserted GPS, or ankle bracelet or something. I know, liberals won't like this. But, it gives the sexual deviant room to roam, under control, at all times!

I think, constant monitoring, is a fair trade-off; given the offense!

By requiring him to live somewhere, in a group-home, with a "live-in" person, is a reasonable "trade-off" given his "crimes".

-----The STATE already provides groups homes for adult people, who have mental incapacities, and frankly, isn't this a WORSE mental incapacity than retardation? Retarded adults don't usually hurt others, or children. This type of "retardation" in mental development causes the adult to hurt children, so money should be put aside at a GREATER level, to house, and account for these types of individuals, don't you agree?

-----Housing = known location. Housing, nothing more than a dorm room, with group lavs, and a group kitchen, etc. I think that letting these guys live like MONKS in a monastery, monitored, is more SAFE than banishing them to the banks of the mighty Loyalhanna????/

for once i somewhat agree with fwr. The should be "kept" somewhere and "monitored" at all times, and not able to just roam where ever. But at who's expense? Sorry but i don't feel that these deviants should have their basic needs just provided for. I honestly believe that castaration is an option. I also feel that chain gangs of some sort could be used. make these predators clean the highways or something to earn their keep. Like i said they gave up all their rights the minute they molested a child.

He was told to leave his mothers home because of the small children who live above him and he is running around with several young woman and they are doing all types of drugs. He states he lives under a bridge so that is where he is expected to be. He did not report to the police that he was staying with his mother for the last 6 to 8 months. According to the police they would have to place a cop in his cruiser out front of the house for 30 days to prove that he was living there. He is not required to where a monitor or live in a group home because believe it or not they have a right to live where they want and go where they want.

Don't worry about that. He has never lived under that bridge. From day one of his release he went to his mothers home. Channel 11 news actually went to where he said he was living and there was no evidence of anyone living there. All winter long he was nice and warm thanks to the tax payers. Barger and his whole family knows how to work the system. If they need a washing machine, couch or food. They will have it at their door within a matter of a few hours. So don't feel sorry for any of them.

It's not that I feel sorry for him, it's more that I look at the "problem" and ways to solve it -- for the greater good, and for some sort of humane custodial care for him.

I've read that the extended family has problems, too. And, that is sad. perhaps his "deviant" nature was something he experienced:

-----at the hands of his parents

-----at the hands of his grandparents

-----at the hands of his aunts or uncles

This type of child molestation, sadly, is often a "learned" behavior.

-----in fact, 90% of child molesters, were molested, themselves, as children, and begin their own molestations of others, often by the ages of 16-18.

While some people might argue that he should NOT be handed a "free ride", the counter argument can be made that:

-----paying for this guy's dorm room, food, and utilities SAVES LIVES!

I'm not disagreeing that these men, couldn't be required to perform work of some sort, either, in their compound. But, they are considered "completed" as far as their "crimes" are concerned, once they:

-----do the time.

Maybe it's the Judicial System that's the problem, and the penalties do not match the threat to society, as well as they should.
