Robert Knudsen: Sexually violent predator leaves Wheat Ridge on heels of parole violation

One of the most uncomfortable responsibilities for municipalities these days is to inform the citizenry that a sexually violent predator has come to town. So imagine how delighted the folks in Wheat Ridge were to let folks know that one who'd previously been living in the community -- Robert Knudsen -- is now gone, thanks to a helpful parole violation earlier this month. Look below to get more details from the Wheat Ridge Police Department.
