BAY VIEW -- Residents in Bay View are relieved a violent sex offender is back behind bars.

Edwin West was granted unsupervised release in April. Neighbors protested at the time, without success.

West recently violated his probation. Officials won't say what he did, but he's now back in the county jail.

"It's one of those things where we have no control," said neighbor Pat LaPointe. "You know we have trust the police and keep an eye on what is happening around here with the kids."

West lived with notorious sex offender Shawn Schulpius. Schulpius still lives in the house, so neighbors are still on edge.
