Calling for emergency actions to protect people with disabilities from convicted sex offenders

Governor Cuomo must immediately stop the placement of convicted sex offenders in group homes and remove the many dozens, if not hundreds, already placed. These illegal practices grossly endanger our most vulnerable.

The Cuomo administration is illegally placing convicted sex offenders into group homes with the developmentally disabled

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – convicted sexual predator and pedophile

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — State and federal laws continue to be violated. Laws that are currently in place that prohibit placing sex offenders to live with vulnerable people with developmental disabilities are being ignored. As the list of sex offenders located by the Jonathan Carey Foundation continue to mount up, nearing 50, the Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports that sex offenders are living directly across the street from an elementary school.

“A person is guilty of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree when he knowingly acts in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical, mental or moral welfare of a person who is unable to care for himself or herself because of physical disability, mental disease or defect.

Endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree is a class E felony.” – NYS Penal Law 260.25

U.S. Code 42 Section 15001 (5) individuals with developmental disabilities are at greater risk than the general population of abuse, neglect, financial and sexual exploitation, and the violation of their legal and human rights;

U.S. Code 42 Section 15009 (a) In GENERAL Congress makes the following findings respecting the rights of individuals with developmental disabilities:

U.S. Code 42 Section 15009 (B) (i) provision of care that is free of abuse, neglect, sexual and financial exploitation, and violations of legal and human rights and that subjects individuals with developmental disabilities to no greater risk of harm than others in the general population;

The Jonathan Carey Foundation has located dozens of convicted sex offenders and sexual predators living in group homes with the developmentally disabled with minimal research of a partial list of group homes in these counties so far; Suffolk, Franklin, Erie, Monroe, Oneida and Washington counties.

“It is illegal to place convicted sex offenders and sexual predators in group homes to easily access and prey on our most vulnerable. Multiple State and federal laws are without question being violated. Moving convicted sex offenders into group homes with the developmentally disabled, which in most cases is no different than moving them in with children knowingly places our most vulnerable in a likely position of being sexually assaulted or raped.” – Michael Carey –Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of New York State’s mental health care system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

Numerous appeals have gone to Governor Andrew Cuomo or Attorney General Barbara Underwood by Michael Carey, U.S. representatives, New York State legislators, District Attorney’s and family members to immediately stop these crimes that directly endanger our most vulnerable. Your help is vitally needed to protect and defend those that cannot speak or defend themselves.

If anyone would like to help advocate and protect our most vulnerable and help fight to end this extreme corruption, please consider making a tax deductible gift to the Jonathan Carey Foundation. Thank you.
