7 Eyewitness News has learned a registered sex offender is living at the Newfane Rehabilitation and Health Care Center. But he had been quietly living in a local nursing home for months without any residents knowing.
What’s even more concerning is how close this facility is to three schools. The registered sex offender has been living at the Newfane nursing center since January, but the state has not notified anyone until Thursday.
This is the same center where the state attorney general’s office is also investigating an alleged rape.
The nursing facility is located kitty corner from Newfane Middle, elementary and high school. 7 Eyewitness News was at the location Wednesday as we recorded school buses that roll directly by the Transit Road nursing home every weekday.
“I don’t want my children any where near a registered sex offender,” remarked Burke Hughes, Lockport parent.
Burke says the nursing residents, who are able, can talk walks right through the neighborhood.
