The repeat sex offender who'd spent the last several days living in Concord parking garages has moved to more permanent housing in Manchester.
Jonathan Perfetto, 34, had been squatting in two parking garages in Concord since his release from the state prison last week. He was spending his days in the city library and city hall. The reason, he said, was because he left prison with no money.
Perfetto left prison last week after serving 3½ to 7 years for 61 counts of possession of child pornography. Before that conviction, Perfetto had been arrested numerous times for sexually assaulting children and adults, he said.
Perfetto's arrival in the city concerned the police because Perfetto never completed sex offender treatment during his prison stay and admitted he was concerned that he would reoffend. Additionally, Perfetto is not under parole supervision, because he never won parole during his stay. His bad behavior in the prison caused him to serve all seven years of his sentence, but once he served the entire sentence, prison officials had to let him go.
Perfetto was not eligible to stay in a New Hampshire homeless shelter, because of his criminal convictions. Yesterday, he found a place to rent in Manchester.
Concord Police Chief Robert Barry quietly alerted downtown child-care facilities and city employees of Perfetto's presence and shared with them his criminal convictions. Barry, however, chose not to alert the community publicly, through the media, because Perfetto had not broken any laws and had not reoffended.
Concord has close to 160 sex offenders registered with the police department. Rather than focus only on Perfetto, Barry urged residents to be generally aware of their surroundings and any of the many sex offenders and ex-convicts who live in the city.
The address of any registered sex offender can be found through the sex offender registry at the state's website at nh.gov.
