State and federal laws prohibit placing sex offenders in with people with developmental disabilities
ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “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; 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 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 to Governor Andrew Cuomo and 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 continue to be ignored to date. Federal criminal and civil rights investigations have been requested by Michael Carey, the federal government must swiftly intervene.
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.
