Pedophile up for release
Kayla Wittmann is no longer the 6-year-old girl whose childhood was stolen by a serial pedophile.
At 26, the Cohoes woman manages a bank branch, is married and is raising a young son.
But when she learned Louis VanWie, 74, the sexual predator who repeatedly abused her and admitted molesting more than 100 other children, could be released from prison before the end of the year, her stomach dropped.
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.
