Nineveh Sex Offender Jailed for Failure to Report Address
A Nineveh man is going to jail for a year for failing to provide information about where he was living to authorities as is required of a convicted sex offender.
The Broome County District Attorney’s Office says 32-year-old Casey Lyons admitted he had told law enforcement in September of 2021 that he was living in the Town of Union when he was not.
He was sentenced October 6 to one year in Broome County Jail for pleading guilty to felony Failure to Comply with the New York State Sex Offender Registration Act.
The D.A.’s office says Lyons had been convicted of a sexual offense in Connecticut in 2014.
Last January he was the point of the weekly Broome County warrant search as he had violated the terms of his probation.
At that time, an advisory from the Broome County Sheriff’s office indicated that authorities did not know where Lyons may be living but had last been known to frequent the Robinson Hill Road area. The information from the warrant office said that Lyons was in violation of the terms of his probation for Endangering the Welfare of a Child and his Sex Offender Registry terms.
District Attorney Michael Korchak commended the Broome County Sheriff’s office in working to track offenders and hold the responsible for failing to comply with the New York State Sex Offender Registration Act.
Korchak noted Lyons accepted responsibility for not reporting, resulting in his jail sentence.
There was no information available concerning how long after the weekly warrant was publicized on January 27 that Lyons was tracked down and arrested on the probation violation count.
There are also no details available concerning the original conviction on the 2014 sexual offense in Connecticut.
