Communities worry as 100-year-old molester is freed

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - December 10, 2009

Theodore Sypnier (SIP'-neer) has completed his latest term in state prison for molesting little girls. The judge who sentenced him said she expected him to die in prison.

He's being released by the end of this week. The director of the halfway house in Buffalo that has twice taken him in from prison says he hasn't changed.

The Rev. Terry King of Grace House tells The Associated Press that Sypnier has "an unrepentant heart."

Sypnier tells The Buffalo News that he is the victim of a miscarriage of justice even though he twice pleaded guilty in a case involving young sisters.
