Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement in Connection with Release of Sex Offender
 
“After hearing the news this afternoon that convicted sex offender Richard Laws may choose to come to Burlington upon his release from prison tomorrow, I had extended discussions with Chief Schirling and State Corrections Commissioner Pallito.  BPD is in the process of notifying the community and taking other steps to prepare for Mr. Laws’ potential arrival.  If Mr. Laws does come to Burlington, the police will contact him and actively work to ensure that he complies with the conditions required as a life-time registrant on the Vermont Sex Offender Registry.  I urge community vigilance, while hoping that Mr. Laws succeeds with his reintegration.”
