Who Not to Leave Your Kids With

The five year old boy doesn't like Raul M. Ruiz, because 'he's always beating up mommy,'.
Sadly, that didn't stop his "mommy" from leaving him home alone with Ruiz. And neither did the fact that Ruiz is a convicted sex offender, a level III sex offender to be exact.

A mother left her 5-year-old son at home with a convicted child molester Monday while she went to a department store where she was arrested for shoplifting, police said.

Raul M. Ruiz, 50, a Level 3 sex offender, was arrested after he was found with the boy in an apartment at 14 Spring St.

The mother, Juanita Rodriguez, 39, of 14 Spring St., was arrested on a charge of larceny of more than $250 by a single scheme.

The child was not harmed, but was afraid, police said.

"He was really scared. He told us he didn't like Raul because 'he's always beating up mommy,' " said Patrolman Arsenio Chaves, who arrested Ruiz.

Ruiz was charged with failing to register as a sex offender. Police said he did not report a change of address as required by the state Sex Offender Registry. SRC

Just how screwed up can one person be? First, leaving her son in the care of someone who beats her, and is a sex offender- just so she can run around stealing things. What a role model she turned out to be.
