Hyde Park Holds Meeting On Sex Offender

Residents in a Vermont community where a sex offender has relocated have been told they need to work together to ensure the safety of their children.

Lamoille County Sheriff Roger Marcoux told about 250 people at a meeting yesterday that 53-year-old Timothy Szad is taking medical shots to suppress his sexual urges, but the community must remain vigilant.

Szad was released from the Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield on July 26 after serving his maximum sentence — with time off for good behavior — following his conviction in a 2001 sexual assault on a 13-year-old boy.

Marcoux said he's meeting with school officials to determine what limitations can be placed on Szad.
