Representative Robert Lancia was outraged upon learning that serial child molester Dana Waters was released from the ACI after serving 18 years for admitting to molesting almost a dozen kids in the late 1990’s.

“I was appalled to learn that Dana Waters, a serial child molester, deemed a Level 3 sex offender, which is considered a ‘high-risk offender’ by the Rhode Island Sex Offender Board of Review, was released from prison last week, and has now registered as a sex offender in the city of Cranston and will now be living at Harrington Hall on Howard Avenue. There are three elementary schools within a short distance of Harrington Hall, and this is a dangerous situation for residents of Cranston,” said Lancia. 

He added, “There are approximately eighty residents at Harrington Hall, and about thirty-five of them are sex offenders, which is beyond high risk for Cranston residents, especially our vulnerable children.” 

Lancia is calling upon state leaders to develop day programs in order to attempt to rehabilitate sex offenders, instead of releasing them.

“I am all for trying to rehabilitate individuals, and give them a second chance in society, but Waters has had no such rehabilitation.  Harrington Hall is a growing problem in Cranston, and I want to work with state leaders to find a better solution to this disconcerting issue,” Lancia said.
