Lawmaker fighting for sex offender records

WEST SENECA, N.Y. (WIVB) – Assemblyman Micheal Kearns will be in state Supreme Court on Wednesday trying to uncover why sex offenders live in two state group homes in West Seneca.

Last month, he filed an article 78 proceeding in state court against the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities.

Kearns wants records regarding how seven sex offenders were placed in the homes.

Many neighbors have been angry about this. Frustration has boiled over a couple of times when the sex offenders left the grounds without proper supervision.

“They put these seven sex offenders into a neighborhood adjacent to a park, without any notification to elected officials, local or state, and all we want are answers to our questions” said Assemblyman Michael Kearns D-Buffalo.

Michele Gray, a mother that lives in West Seneca, said “(It’s) frustrating to me as a homeowner and a mom that I can’t even leave my windows open on a summer night”.

The hearing is set for 10 a.m. on Wednesday in state Supreme Court. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
