Statement by Senator George Borrello on the Release of Sexual Predator and Killer Edward Kindt

WESTFIELD, NY – Senator George Borrello has issued the following statement in response to the news that Edward Kindt will be released to a motel in Westfield, NY

“I’ve just learned that the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) plans to release vicious sexual predator and murderer Edward Kindt tomorrow into a motel in the Town of Westfield.

“I am outraged that the criminal coddling members of the New York State Parole Board have made the decision to release this killer, disregarding the utterly brutal and heinous details of his crime, the trauma of his victim’s family, and with no concern for the innocent members of the public they are putting at tremendous risk. 

“He should remain in jail the rest of his life. However, if the two individuals of the three-member Parole Board panel who voted to free him believe that Edward Kindt is fit to live in society, then I ask them to come forward so we can make arrangements for a placement near their homes and their families.”
