Joseph Hoppe - Repeat Sex Offender - Released from Civil Confinement and STRIKES again

Sexual Abuse-1st Degree
Conviction Date: 3/2/1995 Age at conviction: 43 Victim's Age: 21

A Binghamton sex offender who has already served more than ten years in state custody will go back to jail for at least 25 years for assaulting two women last year.

On Monday, a jury convicted 57-year-old Joseph Hoppe of eight felony counts, including attempted rape, predatory sexual assault, criminal possession of a weapon and grand larceny.

Hoppe previously served more than ten years in state prison for attempting to sexually assault a woman in 1994.
He was also one of 12 New York State sex offenders held in a state mental institution until New York's highest court ruled the confinement unconstitutional in 2005.
