NORWICH – A pair of individuals were sentenced in Chenango County Court Friday, one a registered sex offender who failed to notify authorities of a change of address, the other a former corrections officer who admitted to violating the terms of his probation.
David D. Callan, 49, Binghamton, pleaded guilty to one count of failure to register a change of address as a registered sex offender and was sentenced to five years probation and 30 days at the Chenango County Correctional Facility.
It’s alleged that Callan, on or about March 31, 2012, moved from the Bainbridge area to Broome County, failing to notify the Sex Offender Unit of the change in address within the required ten days to do so.
Chenango County Court Judge W. Howard Sullivan called it a “whole new ball game” for Callan, who could face one and a third to four years in state prison if he were to violate the terms and conditions of his probation. Callan, who admitted he had smoked a marijuana cigarette the evening prior to his sentencing, Thursday, was ordered not to consume nor possess any alcohol, marijuana or controlled substances and will be tested regularly to see if he is in compliance.
