Sangerfield man arrested for failing to register with State’s Sex Offender Registry

SANGERFIELD, N.Y. (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY-TV) – The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center has arrested a man from Sangerfield for failing to register with the State’s Sex Offender Registry.

The investigation initially began back in the Spring of 2021. Investigators assigned to the Child Advocacy Center attempted to perform an ‘address verification check’ for 39-year-old Leon Marriott of Sangerfield but were unable to locate him.

In months that followed the investigation continued with multiple other attempts to locate Marriott at the address in which he was registered.

New York State Law says that it is a requirement for anyone convicted of a sex offense crime to be registered in the state’s database and they must update their address and contact within 10 days of any changes. Marriott failed to do this.

On July 26, 2021, investigators from the CAC and OCSO were finally able to locate Marriott.

Leon Marriott was arrested without incident and charged with the following:

  • Failing to Register Change of Address (Class E Felony)

Marriott processed and then released on his own recognizance. He is scheduled to make to return to the Whitestown Town Court in August.
