Colorado man jailed for failure to register as sex offender in PA

A convicted Colorado sex offender is in Warren County jail after moving into Warren County and not registering with Pennsylvania State Police.

Vincent A. Cisneros, 32, reportedly a homeless transient who moved into Warren County in December, was arraigned Thursday before District Justice Raymond Zydonik and taken to jail after failing to pay $15,000 bail.

Cisneros is charged with failure to register with Pennsylvania State Police, a felony of the second degree.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, Cisneros became friends with someone in Warren County while playing online video games and moved to the county from Colorado.

According to police, officials in Colorado informed Cisneros that he would have to register as a sex offender in Pennsylvania if he moved here. Cisneros allegedly notified officials in Colorado that his address was “off Owens Road by the Taco Bell…”

According to the affidavit, Cisneros applied for benefits through the state of Pennsylvania.

Police “made contact with the Pennsylvania State Police Megan’s Law Section” and was told Pennsylvania would consider Cisneros a Tier 2 offender, with a requirement of 25 years of registration reporting, according to the affidavit.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18.
