Convicted sex offender moves back to the Bronx after he is released from prison
has learned that convicted sex offender Oscar Preston is moving back into his old neighborhood. Preston served 25 years in jail for rape.
Megan's law requires convicted sex offenders to verify their addresses with authorities after they are released from prison. A law enforcement source says Preston has moved into 1900 Beaumont Avenue. The Division of Parole says since Preston served his maximum sentence, he doesn't have any restrictions on his release, such as checking in with a parole officer.
Preston is a Level Three sex offender, which according to New York State classification means he is considered most likely to rape again. Preston was released on parole in 1999 but re-incarcerated for harassing the families of girls he was accused of assaulting.
Flyers have been posted throughout the neighbor where Preston now resides. While some say everyone is entitled to a second chance, most residents say they do not want Preston living in the neighborhood.
