A 52-year-old man with a history of masturbating in public and assaultive and stalking behavior will be released from jail June 29, the police said.

Although Steven Ricci does not have to register as a sex offender, police said he is considered a high risk to re-offend, and is being closely monitored with a GPS device. He is expected to reside at 915 Brighton Ave., and has a curfew in effect between 8:30 p.m. and 6 a.m.

“Maine law does not require Ricci to register as a sex offender, however, the circumstances and patterns of his violations warrant a community notification for the safety of the public,” said Assistant Chief Vern Malloch.

Ricci, who was born with brain damage and has cerebral palsy, has a criminal history extending to the early 1990s, with more than a dozen convictions. His offenses include indecent conduct, assault and violation of conditions of release. His various lawyers, law enforcement officials and others have not been able to find him a suitable treatment program.

While the police notified the public, Malloch pointed out that use of this information to threaten, intimidate or harass Ricci may result in criminal prosecution.
