So you'll contact the representative.... then what? What do you suggest happen in this situation? The man has a right to buy a house and live there. Yes, it's horrible what he might have done, but LEGALLY he's done his time and has the right to move on with his life. He can't be re-arrested. He can't be forced to move. So what are you going to suggest to the representative?? And yes, you're supposed to get notice when a sex offender moves into your neighborhood. A sex offender recently moved into my parents' neighborhood and they got a card in the mail to let them know about it. You can complain that you didn't get notice, but really what are they going to do about it? Say "sorry," send you a postcard, and then move on to more pressing matters.
