A registered sex offender who was convicted of sexually abusing a teenage girl has reported a move in Orange County.
The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services issued an alert this week to Orange County residents regarding the residency of 77-year-old Garland Harris, who has moved from Sloatsburg to an address on South Main Street in Harriman.
The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Harris as a level two threat, which means he is at "moderate risk of a repeat offense."
According to the Division of Criminal Justice Services, Harris had sexual contact with his 14-year-old victim in December 1996. He was convicted of first-degree sexual abuse in August the following year and sentenced to a term of between 42 months and seven years in state prison. He is now under the jurisdiction of the Harriman Village Police Department.
