Sexually Violent Predator Moving to Fort Collins
Fort Collins police announced a sexually violent predator has moved to north Fort Collins.
According to the Coloradoan, Andrew Michael Kaywood, 42, moved into a residence in the 1700 block of Aspen Street near Willox Lane and College Avenue. Kaywood was convicted of sexual assault-overcoming a victim's will in 2007 and was sentenced to prison; he also has drug, assault, DUI, and felony menacing convictions.
Kaywood is one of 7 sex offenders classified as a "sexually violent predator" living in the City of Fort Collins.
Local law enforcement is required to notify the public when a "sexually violent predator" will be living in the community; this would include someone convicted of sexual assault who displays "mental abnormality," denial, or a continued interest in sexual deviance through various screenings, the Coloradoan says.
Fort Collins Police Services cannot legally choose where a sex offender will live once they're released from prison, and unless there are certain restrictions made by the court, they are free to live wherever they choose.
