A friend just told me about this shocking story that happened in Woodstock two years ago. It turned out that Thomas Wanning, a level 2 sex offender who served time in prison for molesting an eight year old boy with cerebral palsy, was the major funder for the Maria's Garden Montessori School and lived on the grounds. Frank Crocitto, the administrator minimied Wanning's criminal past to parents, saying he had been rehabilitated. He didn't mention that Wanning had told the police that the boy victim was "not his first. " Reports are that he touched kids inappropriately as a physical therapist.
The Woodstock Times did some excellent stories on this. The school lost boatloads of students when parents discovered Wanning was mingling among the students. Then they tried to boot Wanning from the property but he refused to leave. Eventually they got him out.
I see his name on Buddhist blogs but I was wondering if anyone knew what Wanning was up to these days? Is he still around kids?
Here's one of the stories from the Woodstock Times.
I would be very interested to hear what Wanning is up to these days.
Here's Wanning's official police mugshot:
