Saratoga Man Pleads Guilty To Failing To Update His Sex Offender Registration Information

Defendant Moved from Elk City, Oklahoma to Saratoga Springs, New York without Properly Registering as a Sex Offender

ALBANY, NEW YORK — EUGENE PERIARD, age 34, of Saratoga Springs, New York, pled guilty today in Albany before Chief United States District Court Judge Gary L. Sharpe to one count of failing to update his sex offender registration information, announced United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and David McNulty, U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of New York. PERIARD faces a maximum sentence of ten years of imprisonment. PERIARD was detained pending his sentencing.

During the plea proceeding, PERIARD admitted that in 2007 he was convicted of a sex offense in the State of Oklahoma. PERIARD also admitted that in early April 2013 he moved from Elk City, Oklahoma to Saratoga Springs, New York and lived in Saratoga Springs until the time of his arrest on April 30, 2013. Records from the sex offender registries in Oklahoma and New York established that PERIARD did not update his change of address information in Oklahoma and did not register as a sex offender in New York.

Sentencing is scheduled for December 9, 2013, at 11 a.m. in Albany, New York. This case was investigated by the Saratoga Springs Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service.
