Community placement for Vt. sex offender on hold

SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont corrections official and the police chief in the town of Springfield say plans to have a high-risk sex offender live in that community on his release have been put on hold.

Springfield Police Chief Doug Johnston tells The Associated Press a relative who had offered housing to 53-year-old Timothy Szad when he's released had rescinded that offer.

Kris Goldstein, treatment chief for the state program that treats sex offenders, says that means release plans for Szad are uncertain.

But she says he must be released as scheduled on July 26 - a week from Friday - because he will have served his sentence maximum. And Goldstein says Szad won't be subject to any supervision by the Corrections Department after that date.
