Wendy Poste started this petition to City of Everett and Mayor Carlo DeMaria

In 1997 an Everett fireman with 10 years of service was convicted of Indecent A&B of a child under the age of 14, his sentence was "suspended" in lieu of 3 years of probation & he was placed on the sex offender list for life! The City of Everett, MA did nothing; they allowed him to continue working as a firefighter for the next 17 years.  Last year, the same person/firefighter drugged & raped me. The City will not answer as to why they allowed a sex offender to work as a firefighter, a public position of trust.  How many other sex offenders are working in positions of trust in this City?  I think the citizens of Everett deserve to know in order to protect themselves and their loved ones.  Other cities and towns have laws against  allowing sex offenders to work as policemen and firemen while active on the sex offender list!  This particular individual never spent one day in jail for the first crime nor the sexual assault against me & that is despicable.  He should have been fired immediately after being convicted in 1997!  The firefighter code of ethics begins with "always conduct myself, on and off duty, in a manner that reflects positively on myself, my department and the fire service in general."  CORI checks are only done when they are hired, therefore they are free to commit crimes.  IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE!

Please sign your name so that together we can begin to change the law to help keep our citizens safe.  Thank you
