NORWICH – Convicted sex offender, 26-year-old Anthony J. Biviano of Norwich, pleaded guilty to failing to register his change of address as a sex offender and was sentenced to one year of incarceration at the county jail.
Biviano was convicted of the violent felony of attempted rape in the second degree in April of 2009.
According the New York State Sex Offender Registry, he had sexual intercourse and sexual contact with a non-stranger 13-year-old female victim.
Biviano was arrested in January of this year for failing register his address as sex offenders are required to by law and was charged with a class E felony.
After being released on his own recognizance by Norwich City Court regarding the charge of failing to register as a sex offender, authorities said it was later discovered that Biviano intentionally provided a false address to the Norwich City Police Department when he was arrested and to the court when he was arraigned for the charge.
He was then charged with a second felony for filing a false statement, which was later reduced to a misdemeanor.
Once charged with a second felony, on Jan. 13, 2015, Biviano was remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond. He has been incarcerated at the county jail since.
