A Level 2 sex offender is behind bars for allegedly failing to register his address.
LeRoy Police arrested Shawn Powers, 48, who they say moved from a Village address to Wyoming County at the end of January and failed to report it. Sex offenders are required to register their change of address with the State Division of Criminal Justice Services Sex Offender Registry within 10 days.
LeRoy Police say Powers was charged with a Class D felony because he has a prior conviction for violating change-of-address laws.
Following arraignment, Powers was committed to the Genesee County Jail on $10,000 cash bail.
