Registered offender fails to report bridge address

This is insane, just insane! All this to know where he sleeps for a few hours of the day/night.

FORT EDWARD, N.Y. (AP) - A New York man who served a year behind bars for attempted sexual abuse 14 years ago is heading back to prison for failing to report his new address under a bridge.

Police say John Printy, a registered sex offender, started living under a bridge after he was forced to move from his Hudson Falls home because it was too close to a school. He didn't register his new address with police or state officials as required by law.

The 41-year-old Printy pleaded guilty in Washington County Court to a felony count of failing to register as a sex offender in connection with his Aug. 16 arrest. He faces one to three years in prison as part of the plea deal. ..Source.. by

This is wrong on so many levels. Mr. Printy's original offense was 14 years ago. He has apparently been living safely in the community for 13 years. He was one of the earliest to be required to register as a sex offender. As a Level 2, his registration period was to expire in May 2006, if the law had not changed a few months earlier. Now he is forced out of his home by a residency law. He is forced to sleep under a bridge. He apparently had the audacity to believe that under a bridge was not a residence.

This is insanity, and this is evil.
