Family Sues to Force Sex Offender Neighbor to Buy Its House
"A Pennsylvania family has sued in an attempt to force its sex offender neighbor to buy the family's house, where the family claims its "trapped" after he was convicted of sexually assaulting their daughter.
The lawsuit was filed in Lehigh County by the child's parents.
OLB, 65, pleaded guilty in 2011 to indecent assault of a child under the age of 13, and was sentenced to three to 23 months in prison. He served time, and upon his release, was forced to register as a sex offender.
The family claims that its home's proximity to a registered sex offender makes it "virtually unmarketable." The parents also claim they feel "trapped" living next door to the man who violated their daughter."
Judge: Sex offender not required to buy victim's property
