Man allegedly molested child

KNOWLESVILLE — A convicted sex offender has been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a child, Orleans County sheriff’s investigators said.

Jason Raiser, 41, of 12633 Presbyterian St. was charged with first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

The arrest came after Child Protective Services filed a report alleging that Raiser may have sexually assaulted a child under 14 years old in May.

Raiser was charged Aug. 4 and was committed to Orleans County Jail with bail set at $5,000.

Raiser is a Level 2 offender on the New York State Sex Offender registry.

He was convicted in 2006 in Erie County of first-degree sex abuse involving two children, a boy, 8, and a girl, 5, in West Seneca.

Raiser was sentenced to 10 years of probation and no prison time.

In 2008, however, he violated probation after he was convicted of attempted grand larceny. He was sentenced to two to four years in prison. He was released, violated parol in 2013 and served another seven months before being released in April 2014.
