LAKE GEORGE - The mother of a convicted sex offender is accused of knowingly transporting him around town to meet underage boys.

Curtis Mallon, 31, is on probation for a past sex offense arrest.

Police say he recently spent the night at a hotel with a 10-year-old and 15-year-old.

Police say both boys thought he was 18-years-old and knew him as “Joe Tadbit.”

His mother, 60-year-old Darlene Mallon, faces charges for allegedly driving her son and boys to various locations. Police say she did this despite knowing he wasn't supposed to be around kids.

Curtis Mallon was sentenced to 42 months in prison in 2006 for sexually abusing a 9-year-old boy. Because of that he's not allowed to have contact with children.

Both are now locked up in the Warren County Jail on several charges. That includes a charge for Curtis Mallon of not registering his social networking profile with police. They say he was using Facebook to communicate young boys.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Warren County Sheriff’s Office at 518-743-2500.
