Suspect in disappearance of Etan Patz gets 6-20 years for failing to register address

A convicted child molester long suspected in a notorious 1979 New York City child disappearance case will spend six to 20 years in a Pennsylvania prison for failing to register an address under Megan's Law the last time he left prison.

Wilkes-Barre's Times Leader newspaper says a Luzerne County judge handed down the sentence Thursday against 70-year-old Jose Ramos, who was convicted in January of providing false information to prison officials.

Ramos was for years the prime suspect in the disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz, who disappeared while walking to his school bus stop. A New Jersey man has since been charged, but a civil court held Ramos responsible. Ramos denies involvement.

Ramos completed a 27-year sentence on unrelated molestation charges in 2012.
