Relocation of sex offenders to N. Buffalo questioned

Two of seven high-risk sex offenders who were moved last month from group homes in West Seneca are apparently now living in a North Buffalo home for the developmentally disabled, according to State Sen. Tim Kennedy (D-Buffalo).

Kennedy and other local elected officials have scheduled a news conference at 10:30 a.m. Monday at the corner of St. Lawrence Ave. and Hecla St. where they will call for a state investigation into the relocation.

The home is within walking distance of at least three schools and a daycare, including PS 86/St. Lawrence Academy, according to a news release.

Kennedy, Erie County Legislator Peter Savage and Delaware District Councilman Joel Feroleto said they will call on the State Inspector General to investigate whether New York violated terms when relocating the Level II sex offenders into the neighborhood.
