GENESEO — A Level two sex offender is behind bars after failing to register and verify his new address. 


Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty advises the arrest of a Level 2, New York State Registered Sex Offender. Daniel Cupp, 27, a New York State Registered Sex Offender since 2011, was arrested for three counts of failure to register and to verify as part of the New York State Corrections Law; all class E felonies.


It is alleged that Cupp was residing in the Town of West Sparta and had moved from that residence on July 10 and was living in the Canandaigua area. Cupp did not change his address to the new Canandaigua address. Also, during the course of the investigation, it was learned that Cupp was using a Facebook page under an alias name and an unregistered e-mail account.


Cupp was picked up in Canandaigua and transported to Central Booking at the Livingston County Jail for processing and to await arraignment.


District Attorney Greg McCaffrey was contacted for a bail recommendation on the felony charges and gave a recommendation of $3,000 cash and $6,000 bond.


Cupp was arraigned in Avon Town Court on Aug. 4 before Justice Michael Torregiano due to no Geneseo Village Justices available. The Judge did set bail at $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond. Cupp is being held in the Livingston County Jail.


The investigation and arrest were handled by Sheriff’s Investigator Dan Rittenhouse of the Criminal Investigations Division.
