Friday, June 29th, 2012 at 10:40 am

A Level 3 Predatory Offender is going to be moving to Pine County in Sandstone. A public notification meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 5 at the Pine County Boardroom in Sandstone located at 1610 Hwy 23 North. The public is invited to attend and is encouraged to ask questions. Rommel Heinrich Fritz will be living in the vicinity of Mosbek Field Road and State Hwy 23 in rural Sandstone.

According to a release from the Pine County Sheriff’s Office, Fritz has a history of sexual conduct and contact with female victims age 7-14. The release states that Fritz gained compliance from his victims through both coersion and by physical force, including holding a 14-year old victim against her will. He was also not previously known by the victim.

Officials stress that this individual is not wanted by the police at this time and has served the sentence imposed on him by the courts.

    “they all should be locked up no matter what level the are”

    Ignorant statement shared by the majority of the uninformed. Our legal system has not caught up with the times and is quite frankly, lazy. I do not see how a few drunks on the 4th who get busted for Public Urination would be of any harm to be living in soceity. But they could be put on a Sexual Offender list depending on how bad their day goes in court. Or what if your niece, without good parenting, decides to Sext message a classmate? Teens have been put on Sex Offender status for such. And the list goes on.

    Granted, this man is the true definition of public concern and deserves such attention. But there are many more who are wrongly lumped in with the true offenders by ignorant people.

    And lets be honest. Your children are in danger from Drunk drivers, people who assault others, other children who may snap in school, meth, and so on. Want paranoia? Just remember that just because your neighborhood residents have no criminal record like this guy, doesnt mean there aren’t people like him living next to you. I feel safer knowing where this guy lives. Its the wolves who are not on the radar who worry me.
