Mr. Ganci, Please update on this story. Apparently he was supposed to see a judge last Tuesday. Haven't heard anything since. I assume many concerned citizens like myself would like to know if this fanatic religious extremist will be roaming our neighborhoods and either threatening young girls again or potentially acting on his violent threats. I sure don't want him living in my neighborhood. Thank you.
