Sex offender asked to move away from La Grange schools

ACLU where are you?

11-4-2013 Illinois:

LA GRANGE – A convicted sex offender has been asked to move because he is living within 500 feet of two schools.

La Grange police notified him that he wasn’t in compliance with state law, even though he is no longer required to register as a sex offender 10 years following a conviction.

Chief Michael Holub said police were aware of his 1989 conviction and that he had fully complied with registration procedures required by laws subsequently passed.

He pleaded guilty in 1989 to having sex with a 13-year-old girl when he was 28 years old in DuPage County.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office had been asked to determine whether he remained on a deed to the property where he lives, which would have exempted him as a property owner from moving. He isn’t listed as an owner on the property, and amendments to the statute apply to him, who is barred from living within 500 feet as a convicted sex offender, the state’s attorney’s office determined.

His residence is across the street from Ogden Avenue School on the northeast corner of Ogden and Waiola avenues, and St. Francis Xavier School on the southeast corner of the intersection.

Holub said he requested and will be given a reasonable amount of time to relocate.

“He has paid his debt to society and wants to remain in compliance,” Holub said.

Police aren’t concerned about him with trick-or-treaters being out for Halloween, Holub said. ..Source.. by The Doing
