Stefan Colmer, who was convicted and imprisoned for molesting minors, has moved to Passaic. Colmer pled guilty to a second degree charge of a Criminal Sexual Act. He is registered as a level 2 sex offender, which means there is a “moderate chance” he will be a repeat offender.
All the shuls and yeshivas in Passaic-Clifton have prohibited him from entering their premises. The community leadership is doing everything possible in coordination with the authorities to ensure the community’s safety. Individuals should not take the law into their own hands.
