A registered sex offender in Batavia has been arrested twice in two days – one of the arrests, was for alleged criminal sexual acts against a child.
18-year-old Ronald Smith of East Main Street is jailed in lieu of $25,000 bail today. Batavia Police allege that over a several month period, Smith had sexual contact on more than one occasion with a victim less than 11 years of age. He was arrested this morning and charged with three counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree.
Smith was also arrested yesterday. Batavia Police say the registered sex offender had failed to notify police of a residency change – which is required by law for all sex offenders.
