A convicted sex offender police accused of fudging paperwork to get into an emergency shelter is now facing felony sex charges following an investigation.

Police allege David Dennis, 30, had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl several times, at one point breaking into an unoccupied residence to do so, according to a release from the Fort Plain Police Department.

Dennis, who police said is a convicted sex offender, reported having no address before being charged June 29 with first-degree offering a false instrument for filing.

Police allege he marked "No" on a question asking whether he was required to register by any government agency while filling out an intake form at the shelter the day after flooding overtook the village.

Dennis was charged with second-degree criminal sexual act, second-degree rape, second-degree burglary; all felonies, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.

Dennis was arraigned and sent to the Montgomery County Jail. His bail status was unclear immediately Tuesday morning.
