AUBURN — A registered sex offender is headed to state prison after admitting to sexually abusing a child and other felonies.

William J. Roth Jr., 52, with a previously listed address of 58 Holley St., was in front of Judge Thomas Leone in Cayuga County Court Thursday, facing charges of first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, a class B felony; failure to notify the Division of Criminal Justice Services of a change of an internet identifier, a class E felony, and 17 counts of possession of a sexual performance by a child.

As a part of a previous agreement, Roth was sentenced Thursday to 15 years in state prison followed by 15 years of post-release supervision for the course of sexual conduct offense. 

Roth was also sentenced to one to three years in prison for both the failure to notify charge and one of the possession of a sexual performance by a child counts, satisfying the other 16 possession charges.

All of those sentences will run concurrently.

A news release from the Cayuga County District Attorney’s Office on Roth’s sentencing said a four-year investigation uncovered that Roth, a previously convicted sex offender, sexually assaulted a female child for three years, that he was in possession of child pornography and he had been using an email address he hadn’t registered with the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services.
