Essex County is considering a local law that would bar registered sex offenders from living near schools or public playgrounds.The law proposed by Supervisor Robert C. Dedrick (R-Ticonderoga) on Monday would be modeled on one passed last year by nearby Washington County.
Dedrick said he first began to think of the law when he learned a pair of registered sex offenders in Ticonderoga reside near schools.
"Two of them were really close in proximity (to schools), one to the High School one to St. Mary's (Catholic) School," Dedrick said. "I couldn't believe a sexual offender could be that close to our children."

Check out nys sex offender registry we have some real creeps on the list that have been charged with disgusting crimes. I read some of the charges from the website and it has the ages of the children. In my opinion if you rape a child you need to sent away forever. They end up living in nice homes with great benefits from our county. So sad the tax payers are footing the bill for these monsters.

New York State protects the rights of these offenders to a fault. This way they can close prisons and save money. They made laws against zoning or even really knowing all of them in the house. If their arrest was juvenile but offensive enough to have them in jail to adulthood, why can we not know this. They also like Ti because of it's police force. Do not have to staff as much with help close by. They pay little to no taxes in our town and laugh at our officials if they to do anything.

What you cant do, is add more penalty to someone that has already been sentenced. Ohio tried a similar law and they were shot down by a higher court. So, you could pass the law, but it would only apply to people that are yet to be sentenced.
Most all of you have no clue, as to what the difference is between a sex offender and a pedophile. Look it up. Pedophiles make up less than 10% of sex offenders. Homosexual men make up 77% of child sex abusers. Hey, lets have a rainbow parade.
How many of you know the big word recidivism?
Recidivism rates among sex offenders are lower than any other crime. 8% will go back to jail within 8 years, but its almost always for drugs or assault.
Now get this .95% of the people charged with a sex crime, have never been arrested before for anything. That means you dont find them on the sex offender registry because they arent there.
95% is also the ratio of sex offender arrests, where the crime is committed by a family member. The person responsible is almost always in the family photo album, not somebody that lives down the street.
This stuff is all fairly simple to research and perhaps will open the eyes of the blind and ignorant ..you.

Execution death in New York State is not for murderers or criminals. It's only for unborn babies.
in 2011 in NY 111,212 babies were executed in New York State at Abortion Clinics. We like to call them "Women's Health Center" when they should be called a death chamber. That works out to 427 every weekday, all year long.
Many are not executed, because Welfare will pay big bucks if you want to raise a half dozen or so.
It's wrong to kill a murderer, but not a baby.

Jenny Hillmans gross husband is a sex offender. I think his name is Kenny, or Kenneth Hillman. Makes everyone wonder what he's done to his "so called" daughter. Who is Callie's real father??
