Sex Offender Wants To Fit In

Sex offender says he just wants to fit in

A convicted sex-offender living in a Cincinnati subdivision teeming with children says he hopes furious residents can see that he's changed.

Paul Iles was in prison for 13 years for sex crimes against two children younger than 12. The 49-year-old says while he was incarcerated he went through a sex-offender treatment program before his 2002 release.

Parents in the middle-class neighborhood where Iles now lives with his new wife say they don't feel comfortable letting their children play outside. About 50 of them expressed their concerns to police at a community meeting Thursday.

Parent Corine Pitts says Iles living in the neighborhood is akin to an alcoholic going to a bar. Iles pastor Reverend Chuck Walters says Iles is a changed man now.
