As a level 2 sex offender, or at moderate risk to re-offend, Binnert is required by law to report to the Sheriff’s Office to have a new photo taken for the New York State Sex Offender Registry every three years.
The Sheriff’s Office alleges that he did not report as directed, even after a letter of reminder was sent to him.
Binnert was arrested for the same charge three years ago when he failed to provide a photo to law enforcement.
The investigation and arrest were handled by Investigator Dan Rittenhouse of the Sheriff’s Office’s Criminal Investigations Division. Binnert was turned over to Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and arraignment.
Binnert was convicted of felony Rape in the Third Degree in February 2004 for having sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl in 2003.
Geneseo Town Justice Kathleen Houston arraigned Binnert. Livingston County District Attorney Greg McCaffrey recommended that Binnert be remanded to the Livingston County Jail on $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond. Justice Houston remanded him to the Livingston County Jail on $500 cash or $1,000 bond.
Binnert has since posted bail and been released.
