Dem Mayor under fire after hiring registered child sex offender for role that enters homes

Democrat Tiffany Henyard, the new mayor of Dolton, Illinois, is under fire for hiring a 46 year old sex offender to be a city code enforcement officer that enters homes and businesses.

Lavelle Redmond, 46 years old is a registered child sex offender spent 24 years in prison after pleading guilty for participating in the brutal gang rape and beating of two underage girls.

Per the Post Millennial “Redmond, along with three others kidnapped and sexually assaulted two girls, ages 13 and 14, in the Roseland neighborhood in 1991, according to FOX 32 News.”

A resident told FOX 32 “I will be terrified to know now if he had come to my house to do a code inspection. I’ll be terrified.”

Another asked “Oh my god. Don’t they supposed to do background checks before they allow these people to in these kind of positions?”
