Story by Kathy Whyte
A level three sex offender is facing a new charge for allegedly failing to register his email information with authorities. 31 year-old Richard Dostis of Walton is charged with felony failure to register address or status change.
Delaware County Sheriff’s officials say as a level three sex offender, Dostis is required by law to personally report to law enforcement officials to verify his address and other credentials any time there are changes, including: switching internet service providers, email accounts, internet account names or identities. Officials say Dostis had at least one email account that he failed to register with authorities within ten days of the establishment.
