LIVINGSTON COUNTY – The sexually violent offender who fled from a Livingston County Sheriff’s Office Investigator following a failure to register a change of address will now be headed back to prison on multiple violations of corrections law.
Robert McLoud, 26, was sentenced to 2 to 6 years in prison for Failure to Report a Change of Address as a sex offender, and 1 to 3 years in prison for a Violation of Probation, to run concurrently with the above sentence.
“Do you know what an enigma is?” asked Judge Robert Wiggins at sentencing. “It means I don’t understand. You are an enigma to me. I know you can do well and I don’t understand why you continue to seek out incarceration.”
ADA Tonra said that McLoud is not eligible for treatment as a second felony offender in this case because his previous crimes violated the penal law and these are corrections law violations.
According to the NYS Department of Corrections, McLoud spent more than 8 years starting in 2006 at Groveland Correctional Facility for two counts of Attempted Rape in the First Degree and two counts of Attempted Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree, both C felonies.
According to the NYS Department of Criminal Justice Services, McLoud used threats or coercion to rape an 11 year old male and a 7 year old female, to whom he was a non-stranger, in 2005.
McLoud was found hiding inside a folding couch in a coordinated search of the area by the Sheriff’s Office, as well as Dansville Police and State Police.
The person who was found to have helped McLoud hide was also charged by Dansville Police.
