Aug 12, 2005 — If you live in St. Lawrence County, you may be getting a phone call to talk about sex offenders. The county's probation office is conducting a phone survey to find out people's attitudes about people who commit sex-related crimes. More than 250 sex offenders live in St. Lawrence County. About 100 of them are supervised by the probation office. Director Francine Perretta says the survey is part of an effort to better help victims and perpetrators of sexual assault and those who live near them. She spoke with David Sommerstein. She says the survey asks people to evaluate various statements.
