Sex felon haunts jail at age 100
Here's proof that only the good die young.
Meet Theodore Sypnier, the oldest inmate in New York. The geriatric jailbird celebrated his 100th birthday in upstate Groveland Correctional Facility in May and has spent most of his 90s in prison after pleading guilty to attempted sodomy of a child.
Sypnier said he is treated no differently than the spring chickens behind bars with him. He catches Z's in a standard prison bed, wears a two-piece forest-green uniform and chows down on regular mess-hall slop.
"It's probably just as bad as being the youngest . . . You just count the days until you're out," Sypnier told The Post in a prison interview last week.
The centenarian is to be paroled in November, but until then he is one of 31 state inmates over age 80.
Bald, liver-spotted and sporting thick glasses, Sypnier began his most recent stretch in July 2008 after violating parole.
In 1999, at age 90, he was charged with 15 counts of sexually abusing five girls in his Tonawanda home.
His prison is a medium-security facility, without cells, so Sypnier sleeps on a small cot in a dorm-like room with other inmates.
He has a hearty appetite and gets three meals a day in the mess hall.
"Whatever they're serving -- pancakes, scrambled eggs sometimes," he said.
The secret to his longevity, Sypnier said, is loading up on vegetables and nuts.
"If you put a can of nuts in front of me this high," he said, lifting his hands up to his neck, "I'll eat right through it."
Sypnier said he keeps to himself, and hasn't been involved in any fights with fellow prisoners.
His family, including four grown children, has disowned him. His first prison visitor was a...

I wonder how long he had been doing this before they caught him.
Sort of resembles David Lettermen......just saying
Really! If he didn’t get caught till he was 90, and was convicted of abusing 5! girls, then damn. He’s been doing this for a very long time.
One would think they'd be grown by now. ...but with this guy you never know.
A window to the future for Roman Polanski ?
This is the most ridiculous observation. Who cares why this piece of garbage child molester is still alive. The real secret to his longevity is that the girls' dads didn't exact their own revenge.
Mickey Mouse next to a sex offender...how appropriate.
If he ACTAULLY raped a child (orally, anally and vaginally) but was a famous director - what is the difference again????
And he is going to be paroled because ... ?
Maybe Satan doesn’t want this creep around any more than we do.
1. 90-Year old man charged with rape of girls 7, and 4. Theodore A. Sypnier of Cobb Street in Tonawanda has been charged with rape and sodomy in connection with two little girls he was baby-sitting. Police say the man, who served time previously for sexual abuse of a minor, was reportedly left in charge of the two girls by a mother who wanted to visit her boyfriend out of town. He had reportedly moved into the neighborhood about six months ago and projected a "friendly grandfather" type image. He was arrested this week after a police investigation and is being held in the Erie County Holding Center on $25,000 bail.
2. Theodore Sypnier, 90, of Tonawanda collapsed as he was being led from court after being sentenced to 10 years in prison. Sypnier pleaded guilty to charges he raped and sexually molested a group of young girls. He had pleaded guilty to every count in a 15-count indictment, including charges of rape, sodomy and use of a child in a sexual performance. Sypnier allegedly raped and molested the girls, whose ages were between 4 and 10 at the time in Buffalo and Tonawanda, his homes in a suburb to the north of the city during the fall of 1998 and the spring of 1999.
I can only assume that he was sentenced to only 10 years because they thought it would be a life sentence.
So what are they going to do with him when his sentence is up?
Just do what would be done to someone found violating his fishing license - take away his tackle.
He put the moves on the one "Really Smoking' Girl" in my class, he disappeared, never heard what happened to him.
“I get older...they stay the same age.”
So why was it attempted sodomy? Little Ted not what he used to be?
One of my adult kids is a police detective assigned to a crimes against minors unit. Believe me, this guy didn’t start at the age of 90...that’s just when he got caught.
It wasn’t even the first time he got caught. He served time previously for sexual abuse of a minor.
