AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) — On August 30, Lawrence L. Elliot Jr., 66, was arrested by the Amsterdam Police Department. Elliot, a level three sex offender, failed to register internet accounts and failed to complete his 90-day verification check-in.

- Unauthorized practice
Elliot was processed at the Amsterdam Police Headquarters. He was arraigned and remanded to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility on $25,000 cash bail.
