Sex offender on federal probation charged with violating rules
A registered sex offender who served six years in a federal prison was arrested and charged with violating the terms of the state Sex Offender Registry.
Jose A. Alvarado, 33, was charged with failure to report a change in address within 10 days. Alvarado was found to be living in Albion when he was supposed to be living in a room at the Day’s Inn.
Alvarado is on federal probation stemming from a 2016 conviction in U.S. District Court in Rochester. Alvarado was living in Irondequoit when he was arrested and charged with coercing a minor in unlawful sexual activity, receipt of child pornography and possession of child porn.
Alvarado used his iPhone and other digital devices to coerce and entice a 15-year-old girl that he knew into having sex with him on multiple occasions. Alvarado convinced his victim to take graphic photos of herself and send them to him using a texting application. Alvarado then sought to control the girl through “sextortion” – that is, by threatening to expose the sexually-explicit pictures of her — and other means [sic].
He pleaded guilty to receiving child porn and was sentenced in 2016 to 72 months in federal prison, with 15 years of post-release supervision. Alvarado is a Level 2 offender on the state registry.
