62-year-old Ronald Washburn of Stafford has been sentenced to six years in prison with 10 years of post-release supervision. He was convicted of molesting two children for whom he was babysitting. The initial charge was related to abuse of a child under the age of 11 years between February and April 2018; further investigation revealed Washburn molested another child while babysitting between July 2008 and July 2012. He was already a Level 1 registered sex offender, which is the lowest ranking on the registry. This means that his information is not public record on the state website. Washburn was previously convicted of attempted rape in Wyoming County in 1996 and had served nearly three years in state prison.
