Police said James Perry stole the name and identity of ... Robert Kowalski in order to obtain a driver's license, police said. Perry was living in Florida at the time and Kowalski was his neighbor. ... Perry moved to Connecticut about a year ago and things went well until Perry was arrested for disorderly conduct. A routine computer check found that 'Kowalski' was a convicted sex offender in Michigan
and not registered as required with the state of Connecticut.
Every bit of identification in his possession labeled the suspect as 'Kowalski,' but the man himself was adamant that he was not a convicted sex offender, police said. Finally, a check of his fingerprints revealed 'Kowalski' to be James Perry.
