ALOHA, Ore. (KOIN) -- When a drunk man stumbled in to an elementary school, investigators thought he was living at a nearby recovery house. He wasn't -- but that investigation uncovered three sex offenders were there.
Washington County deputies confirmed the man who went inside Reedville Elementary school in Aloha was not living at the Fairhaven Recovery House. But they did find three men, previously convicted of sex crimes against children, at the home.
Two of those men were on probation and were required to stay away from children. The recovery home is across the street from the school.
The founder of the clean and sober house, John Liebertz, said they will now check everyone's background for any possible criminal history.
He also told KOIN 6 News the recovery home on 209th Avenue will be shut down by the time school starts in the fall, and that all 10 of the recovery homes he runs is now screening incoming clients for sex crimes.
Liebertz said he also won't open any new homes near schools. All his clients, he said, must also submit to breathalyzer tests.
