DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - A registered sex offender accused of having sex with a teenager has changed addresses in Poughkeepsie.

The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services issued an alert Thursday to Dutchess County residents regarding the residency of 31-year-old Shasha Drayton, who has moved from Rose Street to an apartment on Montgomery Street in Poughkeepsie.

The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Drayton as a Level 2 threat, which means he is at "moderate risk of a repeat offense."

According to the Division of Criminal Justice Services, Drayton’s victim was a 16-year-old girl he sexually assaulted in 2004, threatening her with a semi-automatic rifle. He was arrested by the Poughkeepsie City Police Department and sentenced to six months in jail. He was not designated as a violent offender.
