He Admitted to Sexually Abusing over 100 Kids, and he's Getting out of Prison
(NEWS10) – A child sex predator could soon be out of prison and return to the Capital Region.
Louis VanWie is scheduled to be released 10 years short of his maximum sentence. The Troy man admitted to abusing more than 150 children over decades.
Two of his victims are trying to fight his release.
Some of his young victims never knew his name until his 1997 arrest. His victims said VanWie got away with most of his horrible crimes. Now they fear he will harm other local children when he is released from prison – possibly at the end of December.
In 1996, Kayla Wittman was a sweet faced ballerina. She was a happy kid growing up in Lansingburgh. But her bright smile would fade with the unwanted touches from a man she knew back then as a family friend.
