This is the kind of crap that pisses me off a Judge thinks it is ok to let the man free because of his age. He was violating his restrictions placed upon him and the Judge who I think need his ass yanked off the bench thinks he is ok because of he is old and in poor health.

Parents Upset With Judge's Sentence For Sex Offender
Judge Says Man's Age, Health Led To Sentence
Tom Sussi


NEWPORT, Ky. -- A Tri-State sex offender is getting a second chance and that has some parents upset.

They say Clellon Howard, 84, should be back in jail.

He was released from prison in 1999 after serving a sentence for sex crimes.


Recently, police said they caught Howard taking pictures of Peewee football cheerleaders at Newport High School and found him living within 1,000 feet of a school.

The violations could have put Howard back behind bars for another year.

But District Judge Greg Popovich gave Howard probation and 20 days to move.

"It's insane. At the very least, if not jail, force him to wear an ankle bracelet so you know where he's going," Dan Ryan said. Ryan’s 11-year-old daughter was one of the cheerleaders.

Popovich said he based his decision on Howard’s age and poor health. He said Howard can barely walk.

"He’s not going to chase anyone and catch them. That doesn't mean he's completely safe, but it does give me some comfort," Popovich said.

News 5's Tom Sussi said that when he visited the home Howard was living in, Howard's niece said that he had already moved out.

Josh,

sometimes judges seem to make wrong or misguided decisions, but at the end of the day, we are not in the Court, and we do not know what really went on.

We cannot be our own judges, if we were, then we would live in a World full of revenge.
Let the judges judge, not the public.

The ultimate judge is his maker, and I guess he hasnt got long before he will meet him.
Let him decide, but hey, he is 84, and it is a strength not a weakness for even us to forgive.

Very true I am just upset at the judge because he basicly did not hing to the guy who was in my opinion stalking for a lack of better terms young children in this case taking photos of peewee football cheerleaders. I played peewee footbal and that is like 4th 5th graders. I think that the judge should not dismiss him as a threat simply because of his age or his health conditions.
