A Nineveh man is to be jailed for a year for failing to provide authorities with information about his whereabouts, as is required of a convicted sex offender.
The Broome County District Attorney’s Office said Casey Lyons, 32, admitted to telling law enforcement in September 2021 that he lived in the town of Union when he was not.
He was sentenced Oct. 6 to one year in Broome County Jail for pleading guilty to a felony violation of New York State’s sex offender registration law.
The prosecutor’s office said Lyons was convicted of a sex offense in Connecticut in 2014.
Last January, he was the subject of Broome County’s weekly warrant search for violating the terms of his probation.
At that time, a notice from the Broome County Sheriff’s Office stated that authorities did not know where Lyons might live, but that they were last known to frequent the Robinson Hill Road area. Information from the warrant office indicated that Lyons was violating the terms of his probation for endangering the welfare of a child and the terms of his sex offender registry.
District Attorney Michael Korchak praised the Broome County Sheriff’s Office for its work tracking offenders and holding accountable non-compliance with New York State’s sex offender registration law.
Korchak noted that Lyon accepted responsibility for not reporting, which resulted in his prison sentence.
There was no information available regarding how soon after the weekly warrant was issued on January 27, Lyons was tracked down and arrested for violating probation.
There are also no details available regarding the original conviction for the 2014 sex offense in Connecticut.
