Sex offender’s parole revoked

Sex offender's parole revoked for working at two Bethlehem schools.

Parole has been revoked for a Level 3 sex offender who was working as a contractor at two Bethlehem schools.

Michael T. Wilson, 33, is now being held at Ulster Correctional Facility, according to the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

Wilson had been inside Slingerlands Elementary School and Bethlehem Middle School, because his employer was subcontracted to do work at the two schools. Superintendent Jody Monroe previously said that Wilson did not have any physical or verbal contact with students. Wilson’s presence at the school was the result of proper screening protocols not being followed, she said.

Wilson was sentenced in Warren County Court in 2007 to 18 years in prison for raping a woman. He was released to probation in June 2022, according to the state inmate database.

Wilson is classified as a Level 3 sex offender, which is determined to be the highest risk to reoffend.
