Early release delayed for man who admitted to sexually abusing over 100 kids
TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – In a new development, a man who admitted to abusing more than 100 local children will not be released from prison this Thursday, as was originally planned.
It’s an update on Louis VanWie, who admitted to abusing more than 100 local children in the 1990s.
Troy Deputy Police Chief Richard MacAvoy said after he saw NEWS10’s earlier story about the possibility of VanWie’s early release, he called the Parold Division with his own concerns.
MacAvoy says he has now learned VanWie will not be released from prison on Thursday. That’s because parole won’t allow VanWie’s release from prison until he can provide a suitable housing situation following strict guidelines. NEWS10 ABC has been told VanWie wishes to move in with his sister in Troy after strict guidelines.
