BRISTOL - A local sex offender has been sentenced to more probation time after missing his curfew and multiple appointments with his supervising officer.

Roderick Green, 45, of 231 Burlington Ave., admitted to two counts of violation of probation during a hearing Tuesday in New Britain Superior Court. The deal called for him to have 15 months of probation time added to his current sentence.

Prosecutors were seeking jail time.

Green was placed on probation in March 2018 after pleading guilty to two counts of failure to register as a sex offender.

According to the arrest warrant, Green was convicted of first-degree sexual assault in March 1992. This conviction requires him to verify his address every 90 days with the state police sex offender registry unit. He is sent a letter in the mail that he must return within 10 days.

Green was released from prison in September 1994. In 2013, according to the arrest warrant, he reported his new address as 231 Burlington Ave.

According to the warrant, Green failed to return an address verification letter in January 2016. He again failed return another verification letter in April 2016, the warrant continued.

Upon pleading guilty to the registry violations in March 2018, Green was sentenced to two years in prison, suspended, and two years of probation.

Court officials on Tuesday said Green, while on probation, missed his curfew several times and multiple appointments with his probation officer. Judge Maureen Keegan told Green he could have received as much as two years in prison for his probation violations.

She ordered that his probation will be extended by 15 months. Keegan warned Green that, with another violation, he will be looking at jail time.
