A registered "sexually violent" offender convicted of sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl has reported a move out of Orange County and into southern Westchester.
The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services issued an alert this week to Westchester and Orange County residents regarding the residency of 46-year-old Dennis WIlliams, who has moved from Newburgh to a residence on Prospect Street in Yonkers.
The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Williams as a level two threat, which means he is at "moderate risk of a repeat offense." He is also designated as a sexually violent offender.
According to the Division of Criminal Justice Services, Williams had sexual contact with his 8-year-old victim in October 1997 on Long Island. He was convicted of first-degree sexual assault four years later and sentenced to five years probation. He is now under the jurisdiction of the Yonkers Police Department SOR Unit.
