When we moved in this neighborhood 7 yrs ago, I made sure to find out if there was any sex offenders because I do not want to live by one. Who would!?! 6 months ago this very old mother and daughter living in this yellow house was moved out by family. They had lived there for 20 some years. I think the family moved them closer to town probably in an apartment and they listed the house for sale right after we pulled ours off the market. Now we had our's listed for $115K which is about right out here, this one listed for $75K and it's similar but has an extra 2 car garage to the side so it had to be very out of date inside. So it sold fast and this couple moved in. Never thought anything of these people, until last night.
A neighbor a street over who also works for the police department as a parole officer came over. She has bought Avon so I thought it was Avon related at first. I had her come in the house and she had this paper in her hand. As soon as I saw that paper in her hand, I just KNEW what it was. I don't know how if I assumed (paper=child molester) it was eerie. She said, "I wanted you guys to see this first since you have little ones." It's the house right to the South of us. There's a small lot between us. This was an absolute bomb being dropped on us. I've always felt safe out here but now I am making sure the doors are always locked. I can't even run inside the house to check on Mia sleeping and leave the kids out by themselves for a few minutes alone. This man has 1 aggravated charge of indecent liberties with a child, fondling a a child 14 and under. He was just convicted in 2003!!!
Here's my 2nd concern, my daycare!!!! I still plan on reopening if not soon then by this summer. What mom is going to want to use me with a convicted sex predator living next to me?!?! I was so upset I emailed the State of Kansas last night. As far as I can tell, he has no regulations on being so far away from children or anything! This is such crap. We live in a very close tight knit subdivision outside of town. There are only 3 other people with kids. My neighbor on the North, a cop 1 street over, and one that lives 2 streets over. (there are 3 streets out here) Everyone else is 50's and up. I know this won't sit well with any of them either. Crystal who stopped by last night is making copies and going door to door informing everyone. I don't see him going anywhere since they bought that house just last summer. I'm going to price out privacy fencing again to replace the chainlink and we're buying a new backdoor (a steel one) to the house that has no window on it because that's always freaked me out that someone could easily break in that way. It took nearly 3 hours for me to fall asleep last night and I've felt like vomiting ever since last night hearing this (I'm sure it's not pregnancy related.) We are talking to the kids tonight about staying safe. Last night I was too upset to even try explaining.
