Convicted Seneca Falls sex offender loses appeal

In a news release from the Seneca County District Attorney it has been learned that on 12/21/2012 the Appellate Division of the NYS Supreme Court in Rochester rejected a Seneca Falls sex offender’s effort to reduce his risk level designation.In 2008, a then Keegan Robertson was convicted in Seneca County Court of burglary in the second degree and sexual abuse in the first degree. He was sentenced to five-year concurrent prison terms.In 2011, at a hearing in front of Acting Seneca County Judge Falvey, it was determinded that Mr. Robertson is a level three sex offender risk. That is the highest risk level under SORA and requires offenders to register with the State and provides information to the public about sex offenders living in their communities. There are currently 97 sex offenders residing in Seneca County.The Appllate Court rejected Robertson’s arguments for appeal and as a result remains a level three risk and must register as a sex offender for life and personally verify his address every 90 days with a local law enforcement agency.
