Reader Reports convicted sex offender illegally entered Library of Congress Daycare, Was Arrested, And Released

“Dear PoPville,

Wanted to alert readers to be on the lookout for this person who was able to gain access to the Library of Congress daycare earlier this week. He is a known convicted sex offender (his victim was 5!!!).

The system worked – he had no contact with the children, was escorted out, arrested by Capitol Police and charged with unlawful entry. However, parents were notified last night that he has been released.

Capitol Police has issued a BOLO (be on the lookout) for him for the Capitol Hill area, but it appears that his address on record may be the shelter on New York Avenue. If he is homeless and transient, he could end up anywhere in the city.

Wanted to alert readers to be vigilant, as always, but in particular for this person.”

Following are partial communications from the Daycare to the parents:

I was just informed by LOC Security & Emergency Preparedness that the person was charged with unlawful entry. US Capitol Police issued a barring notice from Little Scholars and DC Courts issued a Stay Away Order from Little Scholars. Unfortunately he has been released. Because of this, US Capitol Police has issued a BOLO (be on the lookout) for him for the Capitol Hill area, including Little Scholars. We ask that everyone be extra vigilant and aware of their surroundings.”
