Local sex offender charged with failing to register

The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau reports the arrest of Othelia Vaturina, age 41 of Dutchess County, on 12/28/21 for failing to report a change of address and register as a sex offender in the area in which he is residing.
Recently Detectives received information that Mr. Vaturina was a Level III sex offender from Broome County NY, but that he may be currently residing in Dutchess County. Further investigation led to the discovery that he was living at the Pine Grove Motel in Beekman and had been staying in Poughkeepsie as well, all without registering the change in address as required by the New York State Corrections Law.
Mr. Vaturina was arrested on 12/28/21 and charged with failing to register the change in address, which is a Class D Felony. After being processed Mr. Vaturina was arraigned before the City of Poughkeepsie Court, and subsequently remanded to the Dutchess County Jail with no bail.
Anyone with information about Mr. Vaturina failing to register or similar incidents is asked to contact Detective David Meyer at 845-486-3778 or dmmeyer@dutchessny.gov. The Sheriff’s Office can also be contacted via the tipline at 845-605-2583 or dcsotips@gmail.com, and all information will be kept confidential.
As with any criminal case the charge described above is merely an accusation and Mr. Vaturina is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
