An investigation into a sex offender living in the Hudson Valley led to the man's arrest.

On Wednesday, the Saugerties Police Detective Division arrested 32-year-old Rene A. Ocasio of Kingston for a sex offender registry violation.

In April 2018, Ocasio reported that he was living at a residence in the Town of Saugerties and a subsequent investigation revealed that Ocasio wasn't living at the home he reported. All registered sex offenders must update police about their moves.

Ocasio was charged with sex offender registry violation, a felony. He was arraigned in Town of Saugerties Court and remanded to Ulster County Jail without bail.

In 2016, Ocasio, a Level-2 sex offender, was convicted for sexual misconduct, which according to the New York State Sex Offenders database, is having sex without consent.
