Sex Offender Gets Two Years For Avoiding Reporting

A man who entered a guilty plea for not reg­is­ter­ing of a sex or vio­lent offender was sen­tenced to two years in prison on Mon­day in Steuben Cir­cuit Court. 35-year-old Lawrence Troup was arrested in Feb­ru­ary, when the Steuben County Sheriff’s Depart­ment deter­mined that he was not liv­ing at his reg­is­tered address and that he failed to report infor­ma­tion to them within the law­ful time frame. Troup claimed it was all just an hon­est mis­take. In the end, he was given credit for four days already served in jail, but no credit for the “hon­est mistake”.
