William F. Dow III Attorney at Law Jacobs, Grudberg, Belt, Dow & Katz 350 Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut 06511
Dear Mr. Dow,
My name is Paul Kendrick. I am a long time advocate for those who were abused by Catholic priests, religious and Catholic Church workers.
In addition, I am an alumnus of Fairfield University and have traveled to Haiti on several occasions. I had lunch with Doug Perlitz several years ago in Haiti and have visited Project Pierre Toussaint.
I want you to know how disturbed I am by your recent comments. I am certain that, as a zealous advocate for your client, you feel obligated to pursue every legal technicality and loophole there is. But instead, I am asking you to act as a responsible and accountable member of the community by using your own common sense to help protect children from being sexually abused.
First of all, moms and dads everywhere, including yourself, want to protect their children from child molesters. Parents are not interested in the half measures you are proposing on behalf of your client. You want to place Doug Perlitz, a man who is wanted by the Haitian National Police and has been indicted by a U.S. federal grand jury for felony child sex abuse, back on the streets of Fairfield, Connecticut (an electric monitor and chaperones won't deter any child molester).
You must know that you are gambling with the lives of innocent children. It is not possible for anyone, Mr. Dow, other than his prison guards, to supervise and monitor Perlitz's every move. Child molesters are cunning, manipulative and charismatic. If Perlitz is released on bail, there is nothing to stop him from using prepaid phone cards or prepaid cell phones to continue his threats and intimidation of his victims in Haiti.
As advocates for the protection of children, we will be there to warn neighbors if Perlitz is ultimately released on bond. As a parent with children, can you imagine finding out that the man who just moved in with the elderly couple next door is not only wanted by the Haitian National Police for child sex abuse, but has been indicted by a federal grand jury for the same crime as a result of investigations conducted by four agencies, including the U.S. State Department and Homeland Security?
If you and Perlitz get your way, Mr. Dow, we will distribute warning leaflets to neighbors about Perlitz's background and dangerous presence in the Fairfield community.
After all, children depend upon the adults in their lives to protect them
