Local officials are warning the public about another dangerous sex offender’s move in the Hudson Valley.

John Pecora is now living at an apartment on Main Street in Poughkeepsie, according to the Division of Criminal Justice Services.

The 64-year-old is registered as a Level-3 sex offender on the New York State Sex Offender register list. He’s listed as a 5’9”, 180-pound white man with brown eyes.

In 1993, Pecora was arrested by the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office on a charge of first-degree sexual abuse of an 8-year-old girl. He was sentenced to five years probation and four months in jail.

Level-3 sex offenders are considered a high risk of a repeat offense and a threat to the public.
