Sex offender avoids jail for moving without notice

LOCKPORT – Five years’ probation was the sentence from Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas Friday for a Level 1 sex offender who moved from Niagara Falls to Buffalo without reporting the change of address to the state as required by law.

John E. Allen, 44, moved from 17th Street in the Falls to Niagara Street in Buffalo in March 2012. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge of failure to register.
