Sex offender not returning to town

218

Scott Biller, a registered sex offender whose move to town raised ire among residents, is scheduled to be released from the Cumberland County Jail in the next few days, but Cape police have been told Biller will not seek to return to Cape Elizabeth.

Biller, 48, was arrested Jan. 28 on a charge of failure to register with Cape police as a sex offender when he moved to town. He rented an apartment at 196 Ocean House Road. On Feb. 9, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 50 days in jail, less time he had served waiting for the Feb. 9 hearing.

Biller was convicted in August 1998 in Broward County, Fla., on a charge of lewd assault and sexual battery on a victim under 16. Because of that conviction, he is required by Maine law to register as a sex offender.

On Feb. 9, Biller was also ordered by Justice Thomas Warren to get his probation officer’s approval of any housing arrangement after he was released from jail.

Capt. Brent Sinclair said Tuesday he had been told that Biller would not attempt to return to town. Sinclair was not sure where Biller would move.

Before moving to Cape Elizabeth in late January, Biller lived at 366 Cottage Road in South Portland, less than half a mile from the Cape town line.
