Sex offender address mix-up infuriates parents
Parents in Center Moriches are outraged after finding out a convicted sex offender registered a playground as his address.
Debra Valez says she and her husband John just moved to 201 Brookfield Ave. John Valez mistakenly registered his address with the house number 21, which is the address of the playground. The numbers 21 and 201 both appear on the mailbox outside the Valez home.
The parents reported the mistake to police, but say they are surprised they didn?t know about it beforehand.
The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services corrected the address on the sex offender registry yesterday.
