Police are warning the Hudson Valley after a Texas sex offender accused of raping two children moved in the local area.

Dile L. George 60, is now living off of Route 44 in Pleasant Valley, near the intersection of Pine Hill Road. The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office describes the Level-3 sex offender as a heavy-set white man with brown hair.

According to the New York State Sex Offenders Database, George was convicted in 1994 in Texas for having indecency with a minor. His victims were an 8-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy.

He was sentenced to 12 years in prison. It’s unclear when or why George moved to the Hudson Valley.

Level-3 sex offenders are considered to have the highest risk of a repeat offense and are considered the greatest risk to the public.
