Sex Offender Caught

Just one day after the Steuben County Sheriff’s Depart­ment asked the pub­lic to help them track down a reg­is­tered sex offender, an arrest has been made in the case.

26 year old Corey Wits­man was con­victed in July of sex­ual mis­con­duct with a minor but was not reg­is­tered as a sex offender as required as a result of his con­vic­tion.

On Tues­day, sheriff’s deputies and the U.S. Mar­shals Ser­vice arrested Wits­man at a home in north­ern Steuben County.

He was booked at the county jail on one count of a pro­ba­tion vio­la­tion and two felony counts of fail­ure to reg­is­ter as a sex or vio­lent offender, and is being held with­out bail.
