Paul Goodrell, a registered sex offender from Canandaigua, appeared in City Court on Friday for a parole revocation hearing, following a series of public lewdness incidents last month. The hearing was adjourned to allow his attorney additional time to review the case. Consequently, Goodrell was returned to jail.
Goodrell was arrested in December for three separate instances where he allegedly exposed himself to young children in various stores. Despite being released after his first two arrests, the recurrence of such incidents led to his current incarceration.
Law enforcement officials are currently investigating further reports suggesting Goodrell was around Eastview Mall and nearby stores earlier in the month. His alleged activities have raised concerns in the community, particularly regarding the safety of children in public areas.
This case highlights the ongoing efforts of law enforcement to monitor and respond to the activities of registered sex offenders, especially when they pose a risk to public safety.
The adjournment of the hearing indicates a thorough legal process in dealing with such sensitive and serious allegations. The community awaits further developments as the investigation continues and Goodrell’s legal proceedings advance.
