THORNWOOD, N.Y. – The Mount Pleasant Police Department added a Level 2 sex offender to its registry this week, which marks the first offender to be added to the list since April 2011.
Adam Ward, residing at 3 Walnut Place in Thornwood, was added to the local registry on Monday, according to Mount Pleasant police. Ward is listed at 5-foot-9 and weighs 165 pounds with brown eyes and gray hair.
Ward, 40, registered as a sex offender in October 2003 after being convicted in April 2003 of third-degree sodomy, a class E felony. He was arrested in White Plains, and his victim was a 15-year-old boy whose relationship to Ward is listed as unknown. Ward was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 10 years of probation, according to the state sex offender registry.
