"This afternoon I was notified that David A. Bell, a Level 2 registered sex offender was in the employ of The Inn at Pound Ridge," Ryan said in a statement Thursday.

Ryan stated that the Inn at Pound Ridge's general manager told him that Ryan's employment was recently terminated.

"We will be investigating why we were not notified of his employment and all of the required notifications under the sex offender laws," Ryan said. "If any laws were broken, appropriate action will be taken."

The 33-year-old Bell was sentenced to 10 years probation after being convicted in 2007 of second-degree rape following his arrest by White Plains Police.
