100 Yr Old Sex Offender Jailed for Refusing Treatment

buffalonews.com: 100-year-old sex offender sent back to jail.

Theodore A. Sypnier, the 100-year-old sex offender, has again been put behind bars for failing to comply with parole mandates requiring him to participate in mental health treatment. Authorities on Monday said Sypnier is being detained in the Erie County Holding Center in downtown Buffalo for failure to participate in sex offender counseling aimed at trying to get him to acknowledge his transgressions.

The judge will determine what action to take on the violation, which could include a return to prison.
At this point, Sypnier’s parole will be completed by May 2012. If he lives, he will then be considered a free man, though he will have to register and periodically report his most current address to the state’s sex offender registry. But it is possible that he could be considered for proceedings under the state’s indefinite civil confinement law.

Hide Your Children! “Sex Offender” Pete Townshend is Coming to Super Bowl

miaminewtimes.com: Hide Your Children! “Sex Offender” and Sometimes Musician Pete Townshend is Coming for the Super Bowl.

This isn’t sensationalist at all. No, the Brevard-based sexual predator watchdog group “Protect Our Children” is being entirely reasonable. If you disagree, you’re most likely a pedophile — or Roger Daltrey.

The Who’s Pete Townshend is coming to South Florida to perform at the Super Bowl. In 2003, the guitarist was arrested in England and accused of searching for child sex photos. He claimed he was researching a book, and was never convicted, but his name was added to the country’s sex offender registry. So “Protect Our Children” is sending out 1,500 of the above postcards to area residents warning them that “Townshend will be at large in Miami on February 7” — because he may escape from the stadium to go trolling for your children in nearby parks.
