Dansville woman arrested on sex offender violation charge

GENESEO- Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of a Dansville woman on a felony charge as the Sheriff’s Office continues to crack down on violations of the New York State Sex Offenders Registry.  Tricia A. Thompson of Dansville was arrested on Wednesday March 2nd 2016 for Failure to Register and to Verify, a Class E Felony.
It is alleged that during the investigation, Thompson had a Facebook account and did not register the account with the New York State Sex Offender. The Facebook Account had been made before November of 2015.
The investigation and arrest were handled by Investigator Dan Rittenhouse of the Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division. Thompson was arraigned in Geneseo Village Court before Judge Bushnell and she was released on her own recognizance.
The Livingston County's District Attorney's Office had asked the court for bail to be set at $750 cash and $1500 bond, but that recommendation was over ruled by Judge Bushnell.
