A registered sexual offender convicted of having sexual contact with a 68-year-old woman has reported an address change in Westchester County.
The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services issued an alert this week to Westchester residents regarding the residency of 61-year-old Fred Smith, who has reported an address change from Highland Avenue to a residence on South Union Avenue in Mount Vernon.
The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Smith a Level 3 threat, which means he is a “high-risk repeat offender and possible threat to public safety.”
According to the Division of Criminal Justice Services, Smith had sexual contact with his 68-year-old victim in October 2015 when he was arrested by the Mount Vernon City Police Department. Smith was convicted of forcible touching in December that year and sentenced to five years probation and nine months in local jail. He remains under the jurisdiction of police in Mount Vernon.
