East Orange parents worried about sex offender

Parents in East Orange are worried about a Tier 3 convicted sex offender who has moved into the neighborhood.

Police warned residents that Alexander Timoff, who was convicted in 2005 for the sexual assault of a girl younger than 13, recently moved across the street from an East Orange day care center after serving two years in prison.

According to the Essex County prosecutor, Timoff is listed as Tier 3 because he has a high risk of molesting a child again.

Notices were distributed to homes yesterday to inform residents about the situation.
