Editor’s note: Glad the Berks County DA is saying enough already. Seems like the “powers that be” target certain communities to be a dumping ground for what nobody else wants in their back yard. Residents of Pottstown and Norristown know this very well!
District Attorney John T. Adams said Berks County is becoming a dumping ground for out-of-county sex offenders who have completed their state prison sentences.
Adams wrote a letter to Michael Potteiger, chairman of the state Board of Probation and Parole, asking that the department stop paroling sex offenders from other counties to Berks.
Another concern he raised was that so many were being paroled to the New Person Ministries halfway houses in Reading and Cumru Township.
Many of the sex offenders, he said, have committed crimes against minors, including rape.
