84-year-old sex offender who slung loaded rifle over his walker won’t get jail time

Prison cell block

HANOVER — An 84-year-old man who four years ago admitted endangering the welfare of a child won’t serve any more jail time for bringing a loaded rifle into a local senior center last year.

According to the Daily Record, Arnold H. Zarra was sentenced to three years probation after pleading guilty to being a person prohibited from possessing weapons. Last July, police said, he hung a .22-caliber rifle over his walker and entered the senior center at the complex where he lived, despite being a registered sex offender barred from owning a weapon.

Zarra, according to the Daily Record, was charged with sexual misconduct against two children in 2013. He pleaded guilty endangering the welfare of a child and given a suspended three-year sentence. He was also placed on lifetime parole and was ordered to register under Megan’s Law. After his arrest last July, a state parole board sent him to jail for a year on a parole violation, the Daily Record reported. His new probation will start in July, when he’s released.
