Endicott Man Sentenced for Not Registering Email Address
An Endicott man has been sentenced to prison after he failed to update his sex offender registration by having an unregistered email account.
The United States Attorney's Office Northern District of New York says Thomas E. Cargill was sentenced to 18 months in prison and 20 years of supervised release. He also was ordered to pay a special assessment of $100.
Cargill was convicted in 2008 for possessing child pornography in Maryland and was required to register as a sex offender.
Part of that requirement was to keep the registration up to date with personal identifying information, including email accounts.
Cargill admitted he did maintain his registration as a sex offender in New York, but for five years, he failed to register a Google email address he created in September 2016 as required by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
In addition to the prison term above, Cargill was sentenced to a 10-month consecutive term for violating release conditions by committing new criminal conduct, lying to his probation officer, and possessing an undisclosed internet capable device.
