BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A disabled sex-offender is accused of assaulting a resident at the nursing facility he was living in. And now this incident is drawing the attention of State Assemblyman Sean Ryan who says "We don't want the elderly and disabled to live in this kind of fear."
The Erie County District Attorney's Office issued this statement from DA John J Flynn “Thanks to the prompt response from Buffalo Police, this defendant is now being aggressively prosecuted by our office for felony sex offenses.”
He is the full statement from a spokesperson for the Waterfront Center "This incident is a police matter. Mr. Moore was admitted to the facility without the administrator being informed of his history. Waterfront Center was made aware of Mr. Moore’s prior sex offender status after the facility had already admitted him, when local police visited Waterfront to make the official notification. By that time it was after the fact and facilities in New York State are prohibited from discharging residents unless there is another facility available to receive them. When the incident in question occurred, facility administration immediately contacted the state DOH and the police, who took custody of the resident.”
Moore is in jail and will be back before Judge Keane at 9:30 on April 25th.
