Alfred Balcerak - Registered Sex Offender Caught Molesting Children Again After Previous Slap On The Wrist
Long Island, N.Y. (The Weekly Vice) -- Well, here we go again. Proof positive that you can't convict child predators and then just turn them loose on the street again. I'd ask bleeding heart judges to take notes, but it doesn't matter. They'd simply argue that pervs like this simply need more medication and counseling.
Alfred Balcerak, a 49 year old registered sex offender who was convicted back in 1998 of molesting a 9 year old girl and a 14 year old boy, is back at it. After a slap on the wrist for his prior offenses, he is now charged with second-degree sexual assault, forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a minor.
According to the arrest affidavit, Balcerak opened an upholstery business which doubled as his residents back in April of this year. Shortly after setting up shop, he apparently began interacting with children, a violation of his sex offender status.
In May, just a month after opening his business, police say he noticed two boys aged 13 and 14, walking past his store front. Balcerak immediately went to work grooming the boys by offering to hire them on a cash payment basis (obviously to avoid a paper trail).
"He roughhoused with them and grabbed them in their private parts" through their clothing, said Det. Lt. Karl Schoepp. "When they got upset, there were times when he would tell them, 'Man up, this is what men do, play roughhouse,'" added Det. Schoepp.
The mother of the 14 year old boy became concerned at the man's behavior and decided to research her son's employer only to discover he had previously been convicted as a level 2 sex offender in the state registry. She immediately notified Nassau police who arrested and chargedBalcerak on Sunday, according to Det. Schoepp.
According to court records, Balcerak was previously convicted to a felony sex offense against two minors, but was only sentenced to probation.
In December of 2007, Balcerak violated the terms of his probation by failing to report his address to authorities as terms of his sex offender status. As a result, he spent a mere 45 days in jail and was again released on probation.
Alfred Balcerak was arraigned yesterday, June 9th, and ordered held on a $250,000 bond.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
So the question of the day is this. Why would a sex offender take the act of molesting children seriously, when it's pretty clear the bleeding heart judges who dump idiots like this back onto the streets don't seem to take the issue seriously?
How many kids have to be molested, raped, groped, grabbed and fondled to satisfy a judge? Perhaps if it were the Judge's children, they'd feel a little more motivated to stop pampering child molesters with probation.
It's for reasons like this that this site exists. We'd like to comment the mom who took enough interest in her son to catch onto Balcerak's suspect behavior. Here is a case where information was the saving grace that empowered this mother to protect her child. This is exactly the goal of our site and the intent of our service. Great work, Mom!
