For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of New York

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Glyn Frink, age 51, of Albany, was sentenced today to 3 years in prison for escaping from a residential re-entry center in September 2021, announced United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman and United States Marshal David L. McNulty.

Frink pled guilty on June 1, 2022.  He admitted that he had been ordered to reside at a halfway house as part of a prior federal term of imprisonment, and that on September 25, 2021, he signed out of the halfway house to go to work and failed to return at 6 p.m. as required. He then remained in the Albany area without approval and failed to notify Albany Police of his change of address as required under the sex offender registry laws, until March 7, 2022, when he was arrested at a fast food restaurant in Albany.

Following his release from prison, Frink will continue serving a 15-year term of supervised release.

This case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Benjamin S. Clark.
