Pedophile’s release from prison after 20 years on hold pending ‘suitable’ housing arrangement
ALBANY — An upstate pedophile who told cops he molested hundreds of kids over four decades could have his expected release from prison delayed because of a lack of housing options.
The Daily News reported Tuesday that child sex assault survivors were livid that Louis VanWie was set to be released from prison as early as Dec. 29 after having served 20 years of his maximum 30-year sentence for sexually assaulting two young girls.
But the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision in a statement now says that “suitable housing has not yet been located for this individual and he cannot be released before that is done.”
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.
