AVON – The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office has determined that a local man who was just released from federal prison for possession of child porn failed to update NYS Sex Offender Registry information, and has charged him with a new felony.
According to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, Luis Matos, 38, was arrested for Failure to Register and Verify, a class E Felony, because he allegedly moved into Livingston County on March 1 and did not notify the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office until June 10 2015.
By New York State Law, a registered sex offender has 10 days to contact Local Law Enforcement of any change of address.
The investigation and arrest was handled by Investigator Dan Rittenhouse of the Criminal Investigations Division of the Sheriff’s Office.
Matos was arrested and arraigned on above charge in Geneseo Village Court by Judge Bushnell and remanded to the Livingston County Jail on $2500 cash bail or $5000 bond.
Matos served nearly 5 years in federal prison for possessing 183 images of child pornography. He was found to be a level 1 sex offender, of minimal risk to re-offend, by a Risk-Assessment-Instrument (RAI) in April.
