A high-risk sex offender was released from prison and is now living within walking distance of a number of popular businesses.

The Kingston Police Department announced on their Facebook page Level-3 Sex Offender Jonah Bullock left the Ulster County Jail and moved to a home on Downs Street in Kingston.

It's unclear why 34-year-old was in prison, but in June 2018 he was wanted for failing to notify the Ulster County Sheriff's Office of a change of address. Registered sex offenders are required to tell police when they move.

According to Google Maps, Bullock is now living within walking distance of the Kingston Library, the Ulster Performing Arts Center and a number of popular businesses.

In 2005, Bullock was convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl. He was sentenced to 2 to 4 years in prison, according to the New York State Sex Offenders database. Level-3 sex offenders are considered to have the highest risk of a repeat offense and are considered the greatest risk to the public.
