Another proud first for Queens

From the NY Post:

A Queens pervert has netted the dubious distinction of becoming the first person in New York City to be charged with violating the state’s sex offender e-mail registration law.

Felix Ortiz, 31 was nailed this week for failing to inform authorities of his "internet activities" under the Electronic Security and Targeting of Online Predators Act (e-STOP) which passed in 2008, authorities said.

Ortiz had pleaded guilty to promoting a sexual performance by a child in 2008 and was serving a 10-year probation sentence.

As a registered sexy offender, he was then required under the e-STOP law to report his Internet activities.

He allegedly lied by telling authorities that he didn’t have any Internet accounts, e-mail addresses or screen names. He’s actually a member of Facebook and MySpace and has e-mail accounts with Gmail and AOL, officials said.

If convicted, Ortiz faces four years in prison.
