MASSENA A level 3 sexually violent offender was charged Wednesday with endangering the welfare of a child, accused of watching a pornographic movie with a toddler in the room in December.
State police charged Gary J. Sharlow, 30, of 9923 Route 56, Massena. He was arraigned by Massena Town Justice Gerald P. Sharlow and released on probation, which he has been serving in connection with a previous arrest on two felony charges of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.
He is accused of forging prescriptions for suboxone in March and April of 2013 in Ogdensburg and Massena. He pleaded not guilty to those charges on Feb. 3.
In February 2003, Sharlow pleaded guilty in St. Lawrence County Court to two counts of second-degree rape and first-degree sexual abuse involving two girls. He was sentenced to two years in jail.
