Knox library's letters to sex offenders

So, are you tired of the whole sex offenders in the libraries issue thing yet? Yeah, me, too.

So here's some more.


I asked the county for copies of the letters they sent to the two sex offenders that are library cardholders. Don't forget there was a third but the dumb ass didn't update his address, so they charged him with a felony and threw him in the county clink.

And county Mayor Tim Burchett - who either gets sole credit or blame - was last seen fist-bumping everyone around him and saying: "Another dirt bag off the street."

'Course he forgot to give the Man with the Badge credit for that line.

But, I digress.

Anyhoo, I asked the county for copies of the letters.

Click right smack here if you want to read.

Also, the county for some reason scratched out the addresses. You can find them at the state's sex offender list by clicking right smack here for that bad boy.

Or, I can just tell you:

A letter was sent to James Hodge, 56. He committed aggravated sexual battery in June 1986.

The other was sent to Brian Leonard, 45. He committed aggravated sexual battery and statutory rape: with prior conviction for statutory, mitigated or aggravated in June 2003.

In the meantime, this has been a pretty controversial issue. About whether the mayor should have banned the sex offenders, or just some of them, or all of them. Or whatever.

Personally, I think Burchett should ban smelly people from the libraries.
