Sexually Violent Predator Christopher Lawyer
Christopher Lawyer, a court-designated “sexually violent predator,” is set to move to California after a year of bouncing around Boulder County.
Lawyer, 42, had most recently been living at the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless at 4869 N. Broadway. But Boulder police spokeswoman Laurie Ogden said that Lawyer’s parole officer informed the department that Lawyer has requested a travel voucher to move to California.
The move caps a year in which the convicted rapist continuously moved around Boulder County while being spurned by cities and residents following his release from prison.
Lawyer first moved in to Boulder County with his mother at 1265 Mallard Court last September, but was arrested on suspicion a parole violation within a few months after a parole officer found pornographic material in his possession.
After serving a brief prison sentence, Lawyer tried to move to the Bar-K neighborhood near Jamestown, but the move was met with staunch resistance from residents, and the Colorado Department of Corrections blocked the move because of the area’s distance from law enforcement.
Lawyer made a brief move to Longmont in early September but then once again moved back to the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless.
Lawyer is believed to be the first person in Boulder County to gain the sexually violent predator designation after being convicted of rape in 2001. The label is given by a judge or the parole board to sex offenders convicted of certain crimes and believed to be prone to re-offend.
Police in 2000 said Lawyer kidnapped a Boulder woman who was delivering newspapers at the Gold Run apartments, forced her into her vehicle and taped her eyes and mouth shut. Lawyer drove the woman to another location, and raped her for more than an hour at gunpoint.
In fact, Boulder Shelter for the Homeless was receiving $280 per week from Colorado parole authorities for providing a “parole bed” to Mr. Lawyer. People in the neighborhood must never forget how executive director Greg Harms chose to put financial greed ahead of the safety of families.
Unfortunately, there are many more registered sex offenders — including 3 other Sexually Violent Predators — being pampered by the misguided do-gooders here in Boulder, CO. See the Boulder Police online registry here, and note how many list the 4869 N. Broadway address of BSH or are otherwise labeled as homeless.
I don’t understand why anyone would choose to donate to the support of these perverts, who are already being enabled by funds from the Worthy Cause sales tax as well as other taxes. A pox on all of ’em!
