Man who admitted to sexual abuse of over 100 kids could return to Capital Region after early release
A child sex predator could soon be out of prison and return to the Capital Region.
Louis VanWie is scheduled to be released 10 years short of his maximum sentence. The Troy man admitted to abusing more than 150 children over decades.
Two of his victims are trying to fight his release.
Some of his young victims never knew his name until his 1997 arrest. His victims said VanWie got away with most of his horrible crimes. Now they fear he will harm other local children when he is released from prison – possibly at the end of December.
1 in 5 New York Kids Are Sexually Abused. Help Prevent That
The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
Sign this petition and change that. Protect NY Kids.
