Letter: Keep sex offenders out of nursing homes

Keep sex offenders out of nursing homes

My first reaction to Tuesday’s News story about the lady in the nursing home who was molested by a sex offender recently released from jail was: Are you kidding me? Is there no common sense in our government? The employees responsible, state and otherwise, should be fired! There is never a good reason to house sex offenders with vulnerable, elderly people.

Sex offenders with no housing should stay in jail. It’s simply justice for what they did to innocent victims. Anybody who thinks it’s not fair should talk to their victims.

The article also stated that state law “does not specifically require nursing homes to notify their residents that a convicted sexual predator lives there.” Change this law!
