Convicted Child Rapist Released From Prison


A former Madrid-Waddington Central School special education teacher convicted of raping three male students in his classroom has been released from prison.

Wilfred Boyea was freed after being classified as a Level 3 sexually violent offender who must register for life.
The 72 year old spent nearly 25 years in prison for his November 1993 conviction of first-degree sodomy and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse in St. Lawrence County Court.

Boyea was given a sentence of 15 to 45 years in prison.
He was released under parole supervision from Mohawk Correctional Facility this week.
According to court documents, acting County Judge Kathleen Rogers, who presided over Boyea's original jury trial, rejected Boyea's claim that he should be classified a low risk offender.
Judge Rogers noted that it wasn't until after Boyea was denied parole in 2007 that he finally admitted to sexually molesting the children, who were between 8 and 10 years of age when the abuse occurred in 1991.
In her ruling classifying Boyea a sexually violent offender, the judge found "the fact that he continued to deny responsibility for 25 years raises the issue of whether or not he was sincere in changing position and actually accepted responsibility."
