FORT CALHOUN, Neb. (WOWT) – Concerns have been raised over a registered sex offender who is living in an assisted living community in Fort Calhoun.
A few people connected to those living in the community are questioning whether or not the arrangement is legal.
There are 48 apartments for seniors at the Autumn Pointe Assisted Living Services. One of those units is occupied by a registered sex offender, but the company officials said no one living in the community is at risk.
Amy Wilcox Burns works for Dimensions in Senior Living, the company that owns the assisted living community in Fort Calhoun. She said she understands the concern.
“Oh a hundred percent, a hundred percent what I would tell you is we wouldn’t have admitted this gentleman if it had been something illegal and if we had concerns for our residents, our staff and the community,” Burns said.
Dave Woodard has a friend that lives in the complex, and doesn’t think it’s ok.
“I think it’s terrible, ’cause to be in a place like this where they’re treating people decently and you got somebody in there that’s like, I don’t know, it’s a danger hiding in a bad corner,” he said.
