Haysville, Kan. –
We’re beginning to get a better idea of the United States Postal Service’s stance and policy when it comes to hiring and employing registered sex offenders.
On Thursday, Eyewitness News learned a registered sex offender delivers mail to neighborhoods in Wichita and Haysville. From what we have been able to gather from USPS, he will continue to be able to do so.
Earlier this week we told you the convicted sex offender would no longer deliver mail to two Haysville Schools. But people who live near the school were worried the offender would still deliver mail in their neighborhood.
"I understand the guy needs a job, there’s no denying that, but he doesn’t need to be in a neighborhood full of kids," said Bob McKedy who filed a formal complaint with the United States Postal Service.
Friday morning, an inspector with USPS showed up at his door to address the complaint.
"He said registered sex offenders do have a right to deliver mail. He said we can’t stop it, he says that’s their right as long as they’re not doing anything to cause any problems in your neighborhood, he will continue to deliver the mail as he has been," said McKedy.
As for the policy, McKedy says he was told the postal service will hire sex offenders.
