Putnam Valley Man Charged with Multiple Sex Offender Registry Felonies

Sheriff Kevin J. McConville reports the arrest of a Putnam Valley man for offenses related to his being designated as a level 3 sex offender and failing to make proper notifications.

In May of 2023, a Sheriff's Office Investigator began an investigation on 26-year-old Erick J. Santander, who was required by law to verify his address every ninety days and appear for a yearly photograph. He had repeatedly failed to do so. After missing several appointments to appear at the Sheriff's Office, he finally did present himself on August 24. He was taken into custody and charged with violations of the NYS Corrections Law of two counts of Failure to Provide a Photo and for failing to appear and provide a photo for the last two years. Also, one count each of Failing to Verify Address Every 90 Days and Fail to Verify Personal Information to the DCJS Sex Offender Registry. All of the charges are Felonies.

Santander was processed and issued an appearance ticket to appear in the Putnam Valley Town Court at a future date.
