Scott Gagnon - Repeat Sex Offender - Charged with FIFTH Sex Crime after "Experts" say he's not dangerous

TEWKSBURY (WBZ) ― A four-time convicted sex offender is being held without bail, now charged with sexually assaulting a jogger along Plum Island Beach in Ipswich.

Scott Gagnon, 51, of Tewksbury, is charged with assault with intent to rape.

He was arraigned in Newbury District Court Tuesday.

Prosecutors say he knocked a woman down while she was jogging Monday, groped her, and then ran off when two people came to help the victim.

Gagnon is a registered level 3 sex offender. He was convicted of child rape and assault charges back in 1980.
According to the Essex County District Attorney Gagnon was released from prison in 2007 because two qualified examiner said he was no longer sexually dangerous. As case law stands now in Massachusetts, those expert findings can't be challenged by prosecutors to hold an individual longer.
That's outrageous to Andrea Quinn of Tewksbury. Gagnon tried to sue her last year when she used the sex offender registry to expose him as an employee at a local McDonald's, where children often eat. He was fired. Andrea says she's proud to be a whistleblower.

"He's an offender. He'll reoffend and reoffend as long as they allow him out in public."

If convicted on this latest charge, he faces 20 years in prison.

A convicted rapist fired from his job at a McDonald's in Tewksbury after a woman told management he was a registered sex offender has dropped his lawsuit against the woman and the restaurant.

Scott Gagnon's attorney, William Korman, confirmed to the Boston Herald that the suit had been dismissed but would not say why his client decided not to go forward.

Gagnon had claimed that Andrea Quinn had misused information about him on the state's Sex Offender Registry Board. He sued the company that owns the McDonald's franchise for breach of contract.

The 50-year-old Gagnon was released just over a year ago after spending 27 years in prison on multiple counts of rape. He is classified as a Level 3 sex offender, considered the most likely to re-offend.
