A registered sex offender is facing new charges after failing to report an address change, police in Southold said.'
On Thursday, Nov. 12, Brian Tillis, 49, surrendered himself to the Southold Police Department after failing to report a move from Fisher’s Island to Groton, Connecticut, earlier this year.
Police said that Tillis was charged with failing to register an address change as a convicted sex offender, also known as Megan's Law. As a registered Sex Offender, Tillis is obligated to notify law enforcement within 10 days of changing his address, which he failed to do.
According to police, Tillis has a previous conviction under the same law from 2008, which upgraded his charge to a felony. He was scheduled to be arraigned in Southold Town Justice Court on Friday, Dec. 13.
The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Tillis as a level two threat, which means he is at "moderate risk of a repeat offense.”
