    BURLINGTON — A Vermont sex offender who failed to register has been arrested in New York state.

    Francis Patrick Mesick, 60, of Burlington was arrested as a fugitive Friday in Chazy, N.Y., according to the Vermont Violent Offender Task Force.

    In 1996 Mesick plead guilty to lewd and lascivious conduct and was required to register as a sex offender. He was convicted in 2008 for failing to register.

    Mesick’s arrest was a result of efforts by the U.S. Marshals Service, the task force and state police in Vermont and New York.
