Level 3 sex offender arrested for rape

TROY, N.Y. – Rensselaer County prosecutors said a Level Three sex offender from Troy is now accused of rape for a second time.

Lonnie Bolia, 44, was arraigned Thursday. He is accused of attacking a woman on First Street earlier in November.

Bolia’s listing on the state sex offender registry said he was convicted in 1991 of raping a then-13 year old. The State Department of Corrections websites showed he was released from prison in 2013.

Bolia is being held in the Rensselaer County Jail for the most recent charge.
