A Port Ewen man who moved to Kingston was accused of failing to register as a sex offender, Ulster County sheriff's deputies said Sunday.

Timothy M. Temple, 21, was arrested Saturday and charged with the felony, according to a news release from the Ulster County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said Temple, a level 2 sex offender, moved from Port Ewen, in the Town of Esopus, to a residence in Kingston, but failed to notify the Ulster County Sheriff's Office, the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services or the City of Kingston Police Department within the required 10-day time period.
