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
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.
