“COPAKE, N.Y. – The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office says a sex offender has been arrested for sexually touching a child, and the child’s mother has also arrested for letting the child visit knowing he was a sex offender.
The Sheriff’s Office says Level 2 Sex Offender 47-year-old Kevin Hawver, of Viewmont Road in Copake, was arrested the night of Sept. 28th after a report to the NYS Child Abuse Hotline initiated an investigation by Child Protective Services and the Sheriff.
Officers found during the months of August and September 2012 Hawver touched the private area of a 5-year-old male relative who had been visiting him. He has been charged with Sexual Abuse 1st-degree, Forcible Touching and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
The sex offender registry shows Hawver was arrested in 1998 for sodomizing a 16-year-old boy.
The young boy’s mother, whose identity will not be released to protect the identity of the child, was also arrested. The Sheriff’s Office says the boy told his mother what happened and she continued to let him go back and visit Hawver’s residence.
The mother was arrested on Sept. 28th for Endangering the Welfare of a Child and remanded to the Columbia County Jail in lieu of $3,500 cash or $7,000 bail bond.
Hawver was remanded to the county jail without bail.”
