GREENFIELD, Mass. - A state appeals court judge has thrown out the conviction of a homeless sex offender for failing to tell police he was staying with a friend.
Claude Bolling, a Level 3 sex offender, registered his address as "the streets of Greenfield," and gave a postal box in Montague as his mailing address in June 2006 .
State law requires sex offenders to give authorities at least 10 days notice of a change of residence. Bolling was found guilty of violating the law when he didn't give authorities advance notice before he stayed occasional nights with his friend in Montague. He was sentenced to a year in jail.
On Friday, Appeals Court Judge Mark Green said there was not enough evidence to convict Bolling. Green said the law doesn't clearly define the address requirement for a homeless offender.
