  • If he’s such a risk, why release him?? Keep him locked away!!

    • Prison overcrowding, I’m sure. Gotta keep those weed smokers locked up…

    • I’ve got to say I totally agree with you!!
      I just don’t understand it?
      But thank you for the warning Kingston police keeping the public informed is probably the best you can do.

  • Parents still alert and keep ur kids in eye view in other words take ur face out of ur electric baby sitter’s

  • High i risk sex offender, who poses a risk to offend persons younger than 14 of age is being released.. What is wrong with this picture?!! No further comments

  • Prison isn’t a place for people to remain for the duration of their life’s for their actions. Prison is a place for consequence to be served and Rehabilitation into society to take place. All criminals are Released in hopes of the criminal act(s) not to take place again. No ones perfect by any means. Mistakes happen and the above we don’t know the full story he may of been sentenced at 18-21 for having sexual intercourse with a young women who at the time was 14 but claimed she was 16 l/17. That is viewed as high risk due to her being a minor. and think about that any women willing to lie about their age at the cost of knowing putting another person in jail who’s the real victim in that situation .

    No by any means am I not defending either half of this case. I’m trying to get the point across that there’s often a bigger picture to the story then what’s seen or known. And often to much stigma and harassment Is the result. It’s people like you who place so much weight on stories criticize and ridicule when you don’t give the chance for anyone to prove themselves. Carla Hermoka is a prime example she’s done strides beyond strides but still she receives so much shame. The police have done their duty to serve and protect they served you with a warning they have protected the society but in turn they must release the culprit in hopes this doesn’t occur again for any individual. If it does guess what he’s backnin jail off the streets but for now all that’s coming forward is the chapter to a new beginning a new life and the belief and hope for a positive one .
