Multiple felon and registered sex offender from NYC found living in Otsego County

Bernard Alston

A three-time convicted felon and level III sex offender from New York City was arrested after failing to tell authorities that he moved.

Otsego County Sheriffâ??s Deputies were called to a home in the Town of Milford where they found 60-year-old Bernard Alston staying with a relative. The investigation showed that Alston moved to Otsego County in the fall of 2013.

Alston was arrested and charged for not notifying authorities of his move within ten days. Alston is being held on no bail, and is facing up to seven years in prison due to a previous conviction for the same offense.
