just watch the dis-honorable Judge Larry Semento turn this pervert back on the streets even if its in a illegal house to close to the school again.

Perverts protect their own kind! Judge Semento is still jerking around the Leesburg cop case when Henri Bart Larue a Leesburg cop on duty stopped with an arrested female in the cage of his police car behind Truemans' Clothing store strip center and made the female perform a sex act on him (whether Bill Clinton calls it that or not!)

So don't expect this morally challenged judge to do the right thing with any sex case!

A 26-year-old convicted registered sex offender, who created a controversy last year after he was allowed to live too close to where children congregated, was sent back behind bars last week after allegedly violating his curfew, according to a Department of Corrections spokeswoman.
Shannon Kadesh Baruch II remains in the Lake County Jail on no bail.
Jessica Cary, DOC spokeswoman, said Baruch was jailed last week after it was discovered he failed to remain at his home during his 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew. A circuit court judge will determine what, if any, punishment the defendant will receive.
Baruch was sentenced to five years of probation in October of 2012 after he pleaded no contest to lewd and lascivious conduct against a minor on accusations of inappropriately touching a girl younger than 16 years old.
Lake Judge Lawrence Semento sentenced Baruch to register as a sex offender but signed an order to allow the defendant to live at his parent’s Clermont home on Willow Crest Drive. Under state law, sex offenders are not allowed to live within 1,000 feet of a school, child-care facility, park or playground and Clermont’s ordinances are even stricter — stretching the restriction to 2,500 feet.
Last year, during a random Clermont police check on registered sex offenders, it was discovered the Willow Crest Drive home was only 821 feet from Our House Child Development Center and 698 feet from a community park and pool.

Baruch was then arrested for violating the state law and released, but remained registered at the same address — telling officials he had the judge’s permission. This sparked controversy among area residents.
The media reported various reasons why Semento had allowed Baruch to live at the home, including it was best that the defendant stay with his parents and Baruch’s attorney had misled the judge on how far the home was from where children congregated.

“I did so because I was under the impression the location of the residence did not violate state law,” said Semento during the hearing last year on whether to allow Baruch to remain at the address.
According to Lake County court records, the State Attorney’s Office decided not to prosecute the case, but it is not clear if the judge ordered Baruch to move. However, Baruch was a resident of Orange County when he was arrested on the curfew violation last week, according to a jail booking sheet.
