COLUMBIA COUNTY - A level two sex offender is facing new charges in Columbia County and the victim's mother is also charged.
Investigators say 47-year-old Kevin Hawver of Copake inappropriately touched a 5-year-old.
They claim the mother let her child spend time with Hawver even though she knew he was a sex offender.
She's now charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
The mother's name is not being released because police don't want to identify the child.
