Monroe man faces charges for Megan’s law violations

A Monroe County man is facing charges of violating the conditions of Megan’s Law as a convicted sex offender.

State police at Stroudsburg said on Aug. 22 the Luzerne County District Attorney Detective Charles Balogh, was conducting an investigation related to a June online chat activity of a registered sex offender, identified as Matthew Raymond Fisher, 50, of Blakeslee.

Police determined that Fisher was not residing at his registered Megan’s Law address in Blakeslee.

Fisher was located at a different address, where he had been residing throughout August.

Furthermore, troopers said, it was determined that, for the past six years, Fisher had been working and staying at a business in Jim Thorpe, while failing to disclose his employment or additional addresses as required.

Fisher was taken into custody and arraigned by a district judge. He was placed in the county prison in Snydersville, failing to post bail.
