Sheriff’s Investigators from the Delaware County Criminal Investigation Division arrested a Davenport sex offender Tuesday for failing to register his Internet and social media accounts, according to a media release from the Delaware County Sheriff’s Department.
Frederick A. Ranger, 52, is accused of maintaining a Facebook account, an email address and mobile Internet access, all of which he failed to register. Ranger is a level 3 sex offender, the release said.
All registered sex offenders in New York are required to register any and all internet accounts, social media accounts, screen names and email accounts with the New York State Sex Offender Registry. Failing to do so is a class E felony, the release said.
Ranger was issued an appearance ticket and released, deputies said. He will reappear in the Town of Delhi Court on July 29 to answer the charge.
