MORE CONTROVERSY OVER TRAILER (It’s been used in Suffolk County to house sex offenders, and what to do with it, and them, is unclear)
Several hundred people protested the use of a trailer as temporary shelter for nearly 20 sexoffenders on the grounds of the Suffolk County Jail at a Riverhead meeting Thursday. State,county and local officials met to suggest ways to get rid of the trailer, none of which appeared toprovide a quick enough fix for residents up in arms at its presence. All of the men housedare convicted level 2 or 3 sex offenders, which means they must register for life and are deemed atthe highest, or second highest risk of reoffending. All have served their sentences, and noneof them have anywhere else to live.
