A sex offender has been arrested on a felony charge for failing to notify authorities of a Facebook account, Chenango County deputies said in a media release Wednesday.

Christopher L. Prosser, 35, of Norwich, a level 3 sex offender, was charged Tuesday with failing to notify law enforcement about a Facebook account that he created, the release said.

Prosser created multiple counts using different names, deputies said, and as a level 3 sex offender, he is required to report Internet accounts.

Prosser was arraigned in North Norwich court and sent to Chenango County jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail, the release said. He is to appear in Smyrna court at a later date.
