Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita, III announced that 34 year old Cara Dickey pleaded, as charged, to Failure to Register and/or Verify as A Sex Offender this morning before Supreme Court Justice John L. Michalski. This is the highest charge for which Dickey could have been convicted at trial.

Dickey was required by law to register a change of address within 10 days, but failed to do so. Dickey had been released on parole after serving a 4 year sentence for her Rape conviction.
