Auburn sex offender sentenced for failure to register social media accounts

An Auburn sex offender was sentenced to prison for failing to report social media accounts.

Steven Strecker, 28, was picked up on a warrant in September and an investigation revealed that he had various social media accounts and phone numbers that were unreported.

In Cayuga County Court Thursday, Strecker was sentenced for two counts of failure to register internet accounts under state corrections law, class E felonies, as well as violating probation.

Cayuga County District Attorney Jon Budelmann said Strecker was on probation for a 2014 conviction of second-degree rape. Strecker must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life for having consensual sex with a 14-year-old girl in the summer of 2013.

Due to Strecker’s mental health and learning disabilities, Cayuga County Judge Thomas Leone sentenced Strecker in October 2014 to six months in jail and 10 years on probation both for the rape charge as well as choking another victim in January 2014.
