FORT EDWARD — A Hudson Falls man who was convicted of rape in 2010 is headed to state prison for repeatedly getting arrested for not registering his address with state officials.
Robert W. Cook, 32, admitted violating his probation on a 2010 third-degree rape conviction in Saratoga County Court. He agreed to a plea deal that includes a sentence of 18 months in state prison, to be followed by 10 years on parole.
He lived in Gansevoort at the time of the conviction, but his probation was transferred to Washington County when he moved to Hudson Falls.
He has been arrested at least twice since 2013 for failing to properly register.
Cook is a Level 1 registered sex offender.
