Protect our children from sex offenders.

On July 30th, a former city Department of Public Works employee was charged with sex crimes against a 14-year-old boy. He has a long criminal history including multiple felony convictions for sex crimes.

Mark Carrigan, 46, who is a Level 3 sex offender, has been charged 40 times on 16 occasions in two decades, authorities said. That includes 16 felony charges and 22 misdemeanor charges.

In a statement the Syracuse Police Department said Carrigan is "perhaps the most prolific offender registered in the city of Syracuse." It is time for the citizens and lawmakers in NY State to take responsibility for the safety of our children. If we do not enact laws to protect them and punish those who hurt them, we should hold ourselves responsible for their harm. We must start by creating stiffer minimum penalties for first time sex offenders and mandatory life sentences for repeat offenders.
