If the convict served his sentence, then he has a right to live like anyone else. His neighbors also have the right (and responsibility) to keep an eye on him.

I think this man has a right to live back in society after serving his time. But chances are he will end up back in there at another victims loss. But to talk about this Sherman volunteer is considered harrassment. If you know the sexual registry web sight you will know that you are not suppose to use this information to harrass..and that Mr. Merrill you sure did.

The site isn't a clone of the Courant, genius. They just use the same commenting system.

Kay sa ra sa ra whatever will be will be- Check the roster of the Sherman Volunteer Fire Dept and see who is a convicted sex offender in New York State and lives in Sherman Ct. New york sex offender registry number is 3960 He spells his first name 2 ways, with a K and with a C. Lives on Ledgewood Drive. No-No
*********I used to live in dutchess county (near amenia where this offender supposedly lived) i looked up the registry in New York and I can't find his name anywhere. where do you get your info from? let me know please...as a new resident of sherman, i'm extremely curious. he is also NOT on CT's list of out of state offenders so i'm not sure how correct your info is.

This individual should be locked up for life. His family thinks it was a mistake? That would be funny if it wasn't so sad. If my brother did something like this dude did FIVE TIMES, he certainly wouldn't be invited to live with ME.

And on a related note, there are different levels of offenders. The Sherman one seems to be a relationship-type offense, which does not concern me for personal safety, but this Southbury animal attacks strangers. We can only hope that fate treats him with the same regard that he has shown to his victims.

If they have a right to live like everyone else then they would not be posted on the sex offender website so the community can be aware of where they are living. I am sure the state did not create that website for fun.
