POTSDAM Scott J. Brunet, 40, of 151 Elm St., was charged Saturday by St. Lawrence County sheriffs deputies with failure to register a change of address as a sex offender, a felony.
Mr. Brunet had been registered as living at 122 Heath Road, but allegedly has been living at 151 Elm St. without notifying police. While living on Elm Street, Mr. Brunet re-registered as living at his previous address with the sheriffs office, leading to a charge of issuing a false written statement.
He was arraigned and taken to the St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, on $5,000 cash bail.
Mr. Brunet had sex with a girl under 17 in 2001, and pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct in 2003.
