A registered "sexually violent" offender convicted of raping a teenage girl and boy has reported a move in Westchester County.

The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services issued an alert this week to Westchester residents regarding the residency of 38-year-old Jelani Rogers, who has moved from White Plains to an apartment on East 5th Street in Mount Vernon.

The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Rogers as a level two threat, which means he is at "moderate risk of a repeat offense." He has also been designated as a sexually violent offender.

According to the Division of Criminal Justice Services, Rogers had "deviate sexual intercourse" with a 14-year-old girl and another boy, whose age was not disclosed, in May 1999. He was convicted of first-degree rape in May the following year and sentenced to a term of between one day and four years in state prison. He is now under the jurisdiction of the Elmsford Village Police Department.
