People in Pueblo learned about the latest Sexual Violent Predator to move into town Wednesday night. He is Paul Ryan.
Ryan is living at 1604 Kickapoo Road with family. He was convicted of sexual assault and has a history of trying to assault adult women. He'll be on parole for 3 years with status.
Members of the Southern Colorado Sex Offender Task Force say sexually violent predators called that because their crimes fit a state law requiring communities to be notified when certain sex offenders are released. The offenders have pleaded guilty to or been convicted to some kind of sexual assault, but are not necessarily violent.
Pueblo police detective Jeff Shay said most sexual assault are done by people who know their victims, not strangers suddenly attacking someone.
