Richland County Mother Protests -- Violent Sex Offender Is About To Move In Next Door

When a Richland County mother started an online petition in an effort to stop a violent sex offender from moving in next door, she didn’t expect much response.

Jamie Shannon says she only has about 200 Facebook friends, but 37-hundred people signed her petition. Shannon says her family moved to the rural area outside Richland Center and keeping things safe for her three children was a major reason. Sixty-four-year-old Richard Sugden spent decades in prison for rape and child abduction and the current plan would have him living less than 100 feet from her home.
