A Hudson Valley sex offender has moved from local county to another. He’s now within walking distance of a number of popular spots.

John McCarthy, 46, moved from Ulster County to an apartment on South Bridge Street in Poughkeepsie.

The Level-2 sex offender was convicted in 2014 for sexual misconduct with a 19-year-old female in the Town of Lloyd. McCarthy was sentenced to six years probation and fined $705.

According to Google Maps, McCarthy is now less than one mile from Mahoney’s, Poughkeepsie Ice House, River Station, Amici’s, Schatzi’s Pub, The Derby, The Mid-Hudson Civic Center, Union Tavern and the Poughkeepsie Public Library.

It’s unclear as to why McCarthy moved from Ulster County to Dutchess County.
