Police in Rutland say a high profile sex offender has been released and is making the area his home.
     
Albert Kurtigian, 66, served time for lewd and lascivious behavior involving a 14-year-old boy in 2013.
    
He also has previous rape convictions dating back more than 25 years.
     
Kurtigian will be on the state’s sex offender registry and is required to check in daily.
    
Police say he’s considered a moderate-to-high risk of reoffending and would most likely target young boys he already knows.
