NORTHUMBERLAND — The families of four Saratoga County men who live in a state-run home for people with developmental disabilities say the state never informed them that their loved ones' new roommate is a convicted sex offender.

Sharon Ashe, 75, of Kingsbury said she recently learned that a Level 2 sex offender is scheduled to be released from a maximum security prison in Dutchess County on Tuesday and placed at her son's group home, located on Route 50 in Gansevoort. The man, now 33, was convicted of third-degree rape in 2011 and again in 2014 after having sex with 14-year-old girls on at least two separate occasions.
