Level 3 sex offender had been arrested six years ago for victimizing three teenage girl during a burglary.

VICTOR — A Level 3 sex offender from Canandaigua was arrested this week after being accused of exposing himself to a pair of 11-year-old children while inside the Michael’s Arts and Crafts store in Victor last month.

Ontario County sheriff’s deputies charged Paul W. Goodrell, 47, of County Road 50, with endangering the welfare of a child, a class A misdemeanor, and public lewdness, a class B misdemeanor.

On Jan. 22, deputies said they received a complaint from a parent claiming that an unknown man had exposed himself to the children. By the time deputies arrived on scene, the individual had allegedly fled the area. 

An investigation carried out by deputies and New York state parole officers allegedly identified Goodrell as a suspect. On Jan. 24, the 47-year-old was taken into custody and placed in the Ontario County Jail on a parole violation. 

He was then arrested on the misdemeanor charges on Jan. 31 after further investigation allegedly confirmed him as the man who exposed himself to the two children. 

Goodrell, a Level 3 sex offender — the designation given to those considered a high risk to reoffend — was convicted in Cayuga County during 2012 of third-degree burglary, according to the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services website. 

The website states that during the course of the burglary, he sexually victimized three girls, ages 13, 16 and 17. 

For his latest offense, Goodwill was arraigned and placed in the Ontario County Jail on $7,500 cash bail or $15,000 bond.
