Waltham Sex Offender Causing Stir in Waltham, Lexington
A Level 3 sex offender's behavior in both towns has raised eyebrows among residents.
A Level 3 sex offender living Waltham is causing a stir in Waltham and Lexington for suspicious behavior in both towns, according to the Boston Globe.
William LaFauci, 57, is due in Waltham District Court this month for allegedly violating a city ordinance prohibiting him from sensitive areas in the city, such as schools and parks, according to the Globe. Also, Lexington Police recently warned residents about LaFauci allegedly approaching a child outside of a Lexington school recently.
Despite his behavior, LaFauci told the Globe he does not want to hurt anyone and people should not fear his presence.
As a result of his travels near sensitive areas, Waltham Police are monitoring him, according to the Globe. He is not on parole or probation.
LaFauci's apparence in court next month stems from a June indicident, according to the Globe. LaFauci told the Globe he pulled into a Waltham park after a car struck him while he was riding his bicycle.
LaFauci has a long history of convictions for sex offenses. In 1992, LaFauci was convicted of open and gross lewdness and in 1993 he was convicted of the same charge as well as indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 years old, according to the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry. In 1998, he was again convicted of open and gross lewdness.
