A registered sex offender from Westmoreland has been arrested for failure to register his internet details.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office says 43-year old John Welch, a Level Two registered sex offender, is required to register any internet details.

They say an investigation revealed Welch had a Facebook page which had not been registered with the New York State Sex Offender Registry.

Welch was issued an appearance ticket made returnable to Whitestown Court at a later date.
