FORT EDWARD, N.Y. – A New York man who served a year behind bars for attempted sexual abuse 14 years ago is heading back to prison for failing to report his new address under a bridge.
Police say John Printy, a registered sex offender, started living under a bridge after he was forced to move from his Hudson Falls home because it was too close to a school. He didn't register his new address with police or state officials as required by law.
The 41-year-old Printy pleaded guilty in Washington County Court to a felony count of failing to register as a sex offender in connection with his Aug. 16 arrest. He faces one to three years in prison as part of the plea deal.
