A town sex offender who spoke out vehemently against banning sex offenders from loitering near schools and playgrounds will face trial Tuesday for failing to comply with the conditions of his release.
Ernest Drupals, 38, of 29 Carrona Drive, was charged in February 2008 with violation of his probation as a sex offender by Stamford police. Police said Drupals moved from Stamford to Greenwich without notifying authorities of his change of address.
Under state law, registered sex offenders face a Class D felony charge if they fail to comply with any registration requirements, which includes notifying Connecticut State Police in writing within five days of when they move or change their names....
After pleading not guilty last year, Drupals elected to have a judge hear his case. Law enforcement officers are expected to testify at the court trial, which is only expected to last a few hours.
Drupals could face a maximum sentence of 5 years and a fine of up to $5,000 if convicted.
