Man admits failing to provide notice of address change


A Bellevue man admitted Monday he failed to provide notice of his residence address change.

Nicholas C. Lacourse, 30, had been charged with failure to provide notice of residence address change and failure to periodically verify residence address, first-degree felonies.

Lacourse pleaded guilty to a lesser-included charge of failure to provide notice of residence address change, a third-degree felony, during a hearing in Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Steve Shuff’s courtroom Monday.

The case is being referred for a pre-sentence report.

The joint recommendation is Lacourse would serve a three-year term of community control, undergo random drug and alcohol urinalysis, complete a substance abuse assessment as directed by Adult Parole Authority and complete a halfway house program.

Lacourse previously had been convicted of rape, a first-degree felony, court records state.

He was classified as a Tier I – the least restrictive level – sex offender.

Angela Boes, assistant Seneca County prosecutor, said the underlying charge was through a youth adjudication, and it was her understanding he had only eight months to go to complete his time of annual verification.
