Former Etan Patz Suspect Sentenced for Lying

A convicted child molester who spent decades behind bars will serve another five to 10 years in prison for lying to authorities about where he planned to live after his release.
A northeastern Pennsylvania jury on Thursday found 70-year-old Jose Ramos guilty of providing false information to prison officials, a violation of Megan's Law.
Ramos claimed he tried to comply with the conditions of his release but his family shunned him and he had nowhere to go.
For years, Ramos was the prime suspect in the 1979 disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz in New York City. Another man has since been charged but a civil court once held Ramos responsible. He denies involvement.
Ramos completed a 27-year sentence on molestation charges in 2012.
