North Carolina sex offender pleads guilty to failing to register in New York

STAFF REPORTS


ROCHESTER -- Curtis D. Solomon, 33, recently of Rochester, pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender, before Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci. The charge carries maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney John J. Field, who is handling the case, stated that Solomon was convicted in 2005 in North Carolina of soliciting a sex offense in the first degree. As a result, the defendant was required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act to register and to update his registration if he moved to another state. Following his release from prison in North Carolina, Solomon moved to Rochester sometime in 2016 but failed to register in New York State. The defendant also failed to notify the authorities in North Carolina of his move. Solomon lived in the Rochester community until March 6, 2017, when he was arrested.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the United States Marshals Service, under the direction of United States Marshal Charles Salina.

Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 15.
