DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - A registered sex offender accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl has changed addresses in Poughkeepsie.

The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services issued an alert on Thursday to Dutchess County residents regarding the residency of 32-year-old Stephen Pressley, who has moved into an apartment on Rose Street in Poughkeepsie.

The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Pressley as a Level 2 threat, which means he is at "moderate risk of a repeat offense."
