ALTOONA — Authorities say a Pennsylvania sex offender paid another man $50 in food stamps to use his address.
Donald Guess, 42, allegedly used the address in Altoona as a mail drop while actually living in nearby Bellwood.
The Altoona Mirror reported that Guess is required to register as a sex-offender for 10 years after a 2007 indecent assault involving a child.
The friend told a district judge on Wednesday that Guess gave him the food stamps to use his address to get mail but he stopped the practice after learning Guess was a sex offender.
Guess' attorney said his client was renting the address in the same way someone rents a post office box.
