Convicted sex offender sentenced to prison

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A convicted sex offender will be spending at least 14 years under the watchful eyes of authorities.

Matthew Borkowski, 40, was sentenced to seven years in prison and seven years of supervised release Tuesday. Borkowski pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault, but was sentenced the maximum amount of time possible even if was found guilty in a trial.

Borkowski, a level three sex offender, was convicted of beating and raping a woman in 1996. He has been on police radar ever since 2013 when he moved to the Village of Sloan without telling authorities of his change of address, which was required by his sex offender status. He was living on Fredo St. within blocks of a local school, a playground and a community center.

Police soon learned Borkowski did engage in sexual acts with victims between 13 and 17 while in the area. He didn’t just victimize people sexually, he also stole property and scammed people out of money.

Investigators called Borkowski’s case the “case that kept on giving.”
